The Contemporary Art Biennale


DIATEX co-producer partner of the 15th edition of the Lyon Biennale

The Lyon Biennale will be held in macLYON and the 29,000 sqm post-industrial space of the former Fagor factory in the heart of the Gerland district – an exceptional site, emblematic of Lyon’s history. The factory, which operated here from 1945 until 2015, was among the last big manufacturing plants inside the city limits. In September, this vast brownfield site will host a system of political, poetic, aesthetic and environmental interactions through works by fifty or so artists of all generations and many nationalities.

The Palais de Tokyo is in charge of this 15th edition, which imagines an international exhibition as a vast landscape with irregular topography and changing climates. Considered one of the largest international events of contemporary art, this Biennale 2019 will be held throughout the metropolitan and regional territory.

DIATEX is a partner-coproducer of an inflatable work by the artist Léonard Martin with the supply of textiles (Advanced Textiles division). This work will be 100% local!

From September 18, 2019 to January 5, 2020. More informations.
