13th Biennale de Lyon. La vie moderne
10 Sep 2015 – 03 Jan 2016
Musée d'art contemporain de Lyon
Built in the 1930s, and extended in 1960, La Sucrière was a warehouse until the ‘90s. Its conversion into the flagship venue of the Biennale de Lyon 2003 marked an important milestone in the transformation of Port Rambaud into an area open to the public. Visitors pass through the old silos to enter the warehouse, following the route once taken by inbound sugar shipments – a great introduction to this 7,000 m² building, which eloquently evokes its past.
