Created in 2002, Rendez‑vous, an international platform dedicated to young creative artists, is handled in an original manner by three French institutions: the Musée d’art contemporain, Lyon, the Institut d’art contemporain, Villeurbanne/Rhône-Alpes and the Ecole nationale supérieure des beaux‑arts, Lyon.

The involvement of curators and directors of biennials makes Rendez-vous a unique project with an exhibition in Rhône-Alpes in parallel with the Lyons Biennial and, the following year, an event abroad consisting of exhibitions and residences.

Rendez-vous 07 was thus the occasion for organising residences in Moscow, Beijing, Miami and Buenos Aires.

Rendez-vous 08 was shown at Shanghai Art Museum.

In 2010, Shanghai Biennial hosted four French artists from Rendez-vous (Delphine Balley, Vincent Olinet, Marlène Mocquet, Chourouk Hriech).

In 2011, as in 2009, Rendez‑vous is held at the Institut d’art contemporain, Villeurbanne / Rhône-Alpes in parallel with the 11th Lyons Biennial.

An international platform, Rendez-vous 11 has been set up with the collaboration of 10 curators of 9 biennials (Istanbul, São Paulo, New Orleans, Dakar, Liverpool, Sydney, Gwangju, Kochi Muziris and Moscow) and of a triennial (Yokohama).

This year’s event features 20 artists from 5 continents (10 of them live in France) with the exhibiting of new projects in painting, sculpture, video, installations, etc.

Rendez‑vous 11, whose visual identity has been entrusted to the graphic designers Thomas Leblond and Clément Le Tulle-Neyret, is accompanied by a website and a digital publication.

With the support of the Rhône-Alpes Region
