Lyon Biennale 1997 : The Other
Curator – Harald Szeemann Venue - Tony Garnier Hall The curator of the legendary 1969 exhibition When Attitudes Become Form directed this fourth edition on the theme of “the other”. He displayed monumental pieces alongside artworks associated with Art Brut, such as those of French postman the Facteur Cheval. With this theme, Lyon stated its intention to think in holistic and pluricultural terms. Two years before Venice, Szeemann showed the Lyon public a wide selection of Chinese artists. The Biennale again took up residence at Tony Garnier Hall for two editions, and moved to a summer berth. Some 79,000 visitors discovered the work of 88 artists.

Lyon Biennale 2000 : Sharing Exoticisms
Curator - Jean-Hubert Martin Venue - Tony Garnier Hall This edition was for once held in an even year to celebrate the three zeros.

Reinstate the freedom to interpret forms on planetary scale. For this fifth edition, the event questioned the validity of art and its multiple applications worldwide. Artists from China, Brazil and Japan took part. The exhibition featured work by 140 artists and hosted 110,000 visitors.
