COURTESY BIENNALE DE LYON

The Biennale de Lyon has revealed the artist list for its 2019 edition, which is set to open in the French city on September 18 and run through January 5.

The biennial’s 15th edition will be organized by Jean de Loisy, the director of the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, along with that museum’s curatorial team, and this year will take place at a new location—the Usines Fagor, a former factory once run by the appliance manufacturing company Fagor. (As in the past, works in the biennial will also be shown at the Musée d’Art Contemporain de Lyon and in the city’s Presqu’île district.)

This year’s biennial is called “Là où les eaux se mêlent,” which can be translated as “Where the Waters Mix,” in reference to a similarly titled Raymond Carver poem. Its focus, according to press materials, will be the collisions between biological ecosystems and humankind.

The artist list follows below.
