The 14th Biennale de Lyon, entitled Floating Worlds and curated by Emma Lavigne, will take place at la Sucrière, the Lyon Museum of Contemporary Art and an original Richard Buckminster Fuller dome in the Lyon city center.

Floating worlds
75 artists from all over the world open the doors of their floating worlds for an unprecedented multi-sensory experience. Images and sounds plunge you into a parallel universe where the lightness and impermanence of the world coexist. Lyon, the city with two rivers, invites you to slow down and let go to contemplate the other side of modernity.
