The Grand Tour has only just begun this week in Europe with the Venice Biennale, but already there are future art festivals to look forward to. One is the Lyon Biennale, which has quietly revealed the artist list for its 2017 edition on its website. The 14th edition of the French biennial opens this year on September 20.

Curated by the Centre Pompidou-Metz’s Emma Lavigne, this year’s theme is “Floating Worlds.” In a statement, Lavigne said that the biennial would use art to address “the instability of the present time” and that large bodies of water would be used as a metaphor for uncertain conditions. Included in this Biennale de Lyon, which will be staged at the Musée d’Art Contemporain de Lyon and La Sucrière, are art-historical favorites alongside newcomers—Saburo Murakami’s Gutai actions will appear in the same biennial as Daniel Steegmann Magrané’s Anthropocene-inspired work.
