Veduta, part of the Biennale de Lyon, is a lab for artistic experimentation. Art history is its narrative; reality, its actor; and urban space, its stage. This platform focuses on two pairs of concepts: “Creation/Reception” and “Art/Public Space”. With each edition of Veduta, we engage
in a conversation with towns in Greater Lyon in order to implement actions: artist residencies, exhibitions, performances in public space, cross-disciplinary forums, etc.
Six towns are taking part in Veduta: Grigny, Givors, Oullins, Lyon, Saint-Priest and Vaulxen- Velin. And various cultural institutions are working together to build the artistic and cultural project: macLYON, Palais de Tokyo, Musée Gadagne, Théâtre de la Renaissance, Musiques en Scène, La Mostra in Givors, the participating towns’ media centres, etc.
Veduta is based on three principles
Formalising artists’ utopias and concepts in reality by using the city as a place of experiment.
A curatorial project co-produced with amateur enthusiasts. This year, they are being invited to narrate the history of Veduta.
Extending the international exhibition outside the city of Lyon.
