2007 – The 00s: The History of a Decade That Has Not Yet Been Named
Curators - Stéphanie Moisdon and Hans Ulrich Obrist Venues - La Sucrière, Lyon Museum of Contemporary Art, Villeurbanne Institute of Contemporary Art, Bullukian Foundation For this final opus dealing with the question of temporality, Stéphanie Moisdon and Hans Ulrich Obrist invited 50 curators from around the world to pick an artwork which, in their view, embodied the current decade. The issue now under consideration was topicality. Work by 111 artists was exhibited in four venues: La Sucrière, the Museum of Contemporary Art, the Institute of Contemporary Art, and the Bullukian Foundation. The ninth edition of the Biennale drew 146,000 visitors.
