From September to December 2011, more than 90 art centres, private galleries, cultural institutions and artist collectives will team up with the Biennale de Lyon. Every other year since 2003, Résonance has proposed an wide-reaching art trail – an event within the event that gives the widest possible public access, across Greater Lyon and the Rhône-Alpes region, to over 125 attractions – dance, performance, theatre, photography, video, installations, design, music, literature, and more. The high points in the programme are the Biennale’s opening week (10-17 September), featuring a host of openings, exhibitions, concerts, screenings and events; and the Nuit Résonance, an all-night event held in central Lyon on 24 November. Full programme to be published in August 2011 in the Résonance guide (30,000 copies) available in Biennale participating venues and at www.labiennaledelyon.com
As part of their cooperation programme, the four conurbations support major cultural events of metropolitan scale. Accordingly, in addition to Greater Lyon and Greater Saint-Etienne, two further multi-municipal authorities – CAPI-Agglo and Vienne Agglo, respectively east and south of Lyon – will echo the Biennale of Contemporary Art 2011 by staging complementary events in their own areas.
