The Spectacle of the Everyday [fr Lyon]

Biennale de Lyon 2009: The Spectacle of the Everyday :: September 16, 2009 – January 3, 2010 :: La Sucrière, MAC Lyon, Fondation Bullukian, Entrepôt Bichat, Lyon, France.

In the age of globalisation, it is not enough for contemporary art to become a spectacular phenomenon embraced by almost all people in all corners of the world. It’s even more important to testify that artists and art communities from different parts of the globe are increasingly sharing the common understanding and strategies to reinvent themselves through engagements with the realm of everyday life. More and more artists are magically turning the ordinary into novel forms, meanings and usages while innovative collective mobilisations are brought to the forefront as a more democratic structure of art practices and their social functions. They are the core of the global art and culture scene today. Through intensely presenting and promoting these initiatives using the most efficient tools, including spectacular events like international biennials, truly innovative and relevant contemporary art practices will obtain a much larger visibility and help us build a new, genuinely public space for our era.

After 20 years of existence and growth, the Biennale de Lyon is now facing a new challenge to reinvent itself. Exploring and presenting the new tendency of the global art scene in its common efforts to reinvent the ordinary into something spectacular and unique, or a new multitude of expressions of diversity, complexity and interactivity, the Biennale itself will certainly reach a new youth. And it’s the best recipe to confront the current crisis that the whole world is entangled with…

The Spectacle of the Everyday is fundamentally changing both the spectacle and the everyday!

Taking place in several venues in the Lyon city and its suburban areas, the Biennale, with works by about 60 artists from different parts of the world, will be structured as a multi-dimensional system that reflects both intellectually and physically the dynamism and complexity of the thesis – The Spectacle of the Everyday – itself. There will be four chapters and one special section:

The Magic of Things or the Reinvention of the Everyday
Celebrating the Drift
Another World Is Possible
Living Together

Curator: Hou Hanru
Artistic Director: Thierry Raspail

Born in 1963 in China, Hou Hanru is Director of Exhibitions and Public Programs and also Chair of Exhibition and Museum Studies at the San Francisco Art Institute.an Artistic Director. He is based in Paris and San Francisco.
