Isabelle Bertolotti’s editorial
Artistic director of the 15th edition of the Lyon Contemporary Art Biennale
AN EXCEPTIONAL LANDSCAPE
A high point in the international art calendar,
the Lyon Contemporary Art Biennale is gaining fresh impetus in 2019.
Thanks to the exceptional Fagor Factory site being made available – a complex of more than 29,000 sqm in central Lyon – the 15th edition is unprecedented in scale. This huge disused facility, together with all the macLYON space and interventions throughout greater Lyon and in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region, make up an outsized field of experimentation that is ripe for the artists’ taking and giving the event a new dimension.
