Borrowing the title of a René Clair film, It Happened Tomorrow kicked off the trilogy devoted to temporality, and explored the future of art by betting on the future. 2003 marked the Biennale’s arrival in several Lyon venues including La Sucrière, a specially converted sugar warehouse, and the Museum of Contemporary Art.
This seventh edition hosted 75 guest artists and moved back to the autumn. It drew 130,000 visitors.
