Entitled “Experiencing Duration “, the 8th Contemporary Art Biennial in Lyon exhibits the works of 61 artists and includes 25 pieces commissioned by the organizers. This collection will essentially be displayed at 5 different locations: La Sucrière, the Museum of Contemporary Art, The Institute of Contemporary Art at Villeurbanne, le Rectangle and fort Saint-Jean. At the same time, 70 associated events will be organized at various different points in the city and its surroundings, and in private galleries and institutions.

This year, the Biennial’s total budget amounts to EUR 5.5 million. Numerically speaking, the Lyon Biennial is the third largest biennial event in the world with roughly 170,000 visitors of whom close to 40% are foreign, and 1,200 are art critics and writers from across the globe.

This year, the Lyon Biennial is exhibiting works from the seventies (Andy Warhol, Gordon Matta-Clark, Yoko Ono, Terry Riley) alongside contemporary creations (Kader Attia, Martin Creed, Spencer Tunick). Thus, the overall impact is both spatially and temporally broad. Indeed, the works on display form a powerful collection of sensory experiences and invite active participation from visitors.

In the framework of this event, Artprice, a partner of the 2000, 2001, 2003 and 2005 Biennials, premieres Artprice TV. The screens at the Biennial, broadcasting Artprice TV continuously (a selection of classified ads for art works and presentations of future auctions re-formatted for TV and 3G), represent, according to art critics and professionals the finest auction catalogue ever” and for others, the end of an era and the transition of the art market to the 21st century.

Just 9 months after its launch, Artprice’s standardized marketplace accounts for 32.8% of global fine art sales (source: A.M.I.).
