Rendez-vous 2008

September 19, 2008 - January 4, 2009

Since 2002 the exhibition “Rendez-Vous” has taken place once a year. It was initiated by Museum of Contemporary Art of Lyon in close collaboration with the Ecole nationale des beaux-arts de Lyon. In 2003 the Institut of Contemporary Art in Villeurbanne joined the two, and it is since this time that these three institutions coproduce the show. Priority to young and rising artists, who have recently graduated, as well as autodidacts are exhibited. The exhibition is presented alternately in each of the three places. For the 2008 edition, it will be held at the Museum of Contemporary Art of Lyon .

The exhibition is understood as a platform for mutual exchange. It has the aim to help young artists to establish their international and professional networks. The show wants to foster and to promote artistic creation of the Rhône-Alpes region. The project encourages artists to work with all media and in all genres: painting, sculpture, video, installations... and at the same time to create new artworks. The design of the exhibition is produced by young graphic designers. In 2007 a catalogue of 156 pages was published which presents each artist

At this year’s exhibition approximately 20 young artists will be presented to the public.
