Jeune création internationale

The Lyon Biennale | 16th | Contemporary art

from  to 
This new edition of Young International Artists (Jeune création internationale) is focusing on new work in Europe, by inviting five European curators to show artists who complement those who have graduated from art schools in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region. The latter group is selected by a panel of judges comprising the institutions co-staging the event (Lyon Contemporary Art Biennale; National Fine Arts School in Lyon; Institute of Contemporary Art, Villeurbanne/Rhône-Alpes; and macLYON) and two artists from previous editions, Anne Le Troter and Nicolas Momein.
This complementary mix of institutions – inter-territory collaborations, pooled networks, and reaching out to a variety of audiences – is highly unusual both in France and worldwide. It offers unprecedented visibility to young artists whose work is, as yet, little known.

Devised in 2002 by macLYON and the National Fine Arts School in Lyon, subsequently joined by the Institute of Contemporary Art, Villeurbanne/Rhône-Alpes, the event became part of the Lyon Biennale in 2019.

After developing ties with scenes beyond Europe (such as Shanghai, Cape Town, Singapore, Beijing and Havana), Young International Artists is now endeavouring to build or consolidate European networks to promote interaction with active scenes closer to Lyon.

A project supported by the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Region.
