The 13th Biennale de Lyon, titled La vie moderne, brings together 60 artists from 28 countries who explore the contradictory character of contemporary culture. Their work addresses the ways in which multifarious legacies of the modern era continue to colour and shape our perceptions as well as the salient scenarios and issues of everyday life (guest curator: Ralph Rugoff)

The 13th Biennale de Lyon is made of four exhibitions (La vie moderne, Ce fabuleux monde moderne, Rendez-vous 15 and Anish Kapoor chez Le Corbusier at couvent de la Tourette) and two platforms (Veduta and Résonance).
