Rendez-vous Cuba 2018


from  to 

Created by the Musée d’art contemporain de Lyon in 2002, Rendez-vous, an international platform for young creative artists with funding from the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Region, unique in France, involves the combined energies of four separate institutions : the Biennale de Lyon, the École nationale supérieure des beaux-arts de Lyon, the IAC, and the
Musée d’art contemporain de Lyon. Artistic direction of the event is shared by all four.
The collegiate artistic direction of Rendez-vous and its curatorship, which is open to ten international biennials and triennials, make this a unique project in Europe.
For 2017, Rendez-vous has extended invitations to the biennials of Havana (Cuba), Jakarta (Indonesia), Kochi-Muziris (India), Lubumbashi (Democratic Republic of Congo), Marrakech (Morocco), Shanghai (China), Sharjah (United Arab Emirates), and the triennials of Aichi (Japan), Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art (Brisbane, Australia)
and Eva International (Ireland). During the Biennale de Lyon, Rendez-vous is exhibited at the IAC and the following year outside of Europe. This is why Rendez-vous was presented in Shanghai (2010); in Cape Town (2012); in Singapore (2015) and in Beijing (2017).

The exhibition Rendez-vous Cuba will take place from june to August 2018 at the Centro de Arte Contemporanéeo Wifredo Lam, with 11 young French artists and young Cuban artists (currently being selected).

The Centro de Arte Contem-poraneo Wifredo Lam is the keystone of contemporary art in Havana, where the Havana Biennal and temporary exhibitions are organized and presented. The project is a prelude to the 2019 Havana Biennial, creating a dialogue between young artists from Lyon and Havana. It materializes through the production of a group show, the publication of a catalogue and the organization of meetings between the artists, professionals from the visual arts field and art collectors (studio visits, panel discussions etc.).
