The emerging scene at the Institut d’art contemporain

Jeune création internationale, the product of a unique partnership between French institutions, brings together the Lyon Biennale, the Institut d’Art Contemporain in Villeurbanne, macLYON (the Lyon museum of contemporary art) and an art school in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region, which this year is the École Supérieure d'Art Annecy Alpes (ESAAA).

Ten up-and-coming artists — five each from the regional and international scenes — have been invited to devise a project for the 17th Lyon Biennale. The mix of institutions — with intersecting territories, shared networks and exposure to a variety of audiences — offers the young artists tremendous visibility.

For this latest edition, the regional artists were selected via a call for projects open to all artists with a link to Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes. The international selection, however, was made through invitations extended to curators and in conjunction with other biennials and cultural institutions. The strong emphasis on making new work gives the artists the possibility create fresh projects.

The artists : Hilary Galbreaith, Vir Andres Hera, Meri Karapetyan, Ines Katamso, Nadežda Kirćanski, Sahil Naik, Matthias Odin, Jennetta Petch & Szymon Kula, Shivay la Multiple, Anastasia Sosunova.
