Meanwhile… Suddenly, And Then (Entre-temps… Brusquement, Et Ensuite) is the headline of the 12th Biennale de Lyon in France. The title hints at the focus of the 2013 edition of the biennial, storytelling. Since the first Lyon Biennale in 1991, the artistic director, Thierry Raspail has invited guest curators to think in terms of a key word. This year, the word is Transmission, and the curator Gunnar B. Kvaran responded with the word Narrative. Following this theme, Kvaran has invited artists from all over the world who work in the narrative field and use art to experiment with the modalities and mechanisms of storytelling. The artists invited include Ed Atkins, Helen Marten, Vaclav Magid, Trisha Baga, Ian Cheng, Petra Cortright, Nate Lowman, Ryan Trecartin, Zhang Ding, Masaya Chiba, Neil Beloufa and Lili Reynaud-Dewar. This video provides you with an exhibition walkthrough and an introduction by curator Gunnar B. Kvaran.
