The Spectacle of the Everyday

By Linda Tancs

Pablo Picasso famously observed that art washes the dust of everyday life from the soul.  Imagine what he’d think of the 10th edition of the Biennale de Lyon, carrying the theme “The Spectacle of the Everyday.”  The exhibition, running through 3 January 2010, encourages visitors to contemplate art’s place in a world defined by consumption.   Through sculptures, paintings, videos, photographs or installations by around 50 international artists, the complexity and diversity of simple human existence–the dust, as Picasso would see it–is celebrated.  While you’re in the city, why not experience the rest of the culture and heritage of this region in east-central France? Get a city card for 1, 2 or 3 days, which includes free access to the Biennale.
