Producing artworks itself, the Museum of Contemporary Art Lyon pays special attention to the presumption underlying all artistic logic that is that the actual moment of creation is fundamental. This is why it stresses the link between the artist and the timing of the exhibition by supplying the artist with all the necessary means to accomplish his aims.

The production process generally furthers a completly novel piece of work important for the artist. This may be because it is closely linked with the rest of his entire oeuvre and thus represents a kind of synthesis, or because it might also touch unexplored depths. Quite often the artist’s plan determines the scenography which then evolves easily by itself.

The architecture and the functioning of the exhibition space have been designed the way to leave as much room as possible for this creative process. The close collaboration with the museum offers the artist a chance to produce a work of originality, at times even exceeding his own limits.
