Christina Quarles included in the 16th Lyon Biennale
Christina Quarles’s work will feature in a presentation of 80 international contemporary artists as part of the 16th Lyon Biennale.
This year’s Biennale, conceived by curators Sam Bardaouil and Till Fellrath, brings together artworks and objects spanning millennia and disparate geographies to position fragility at the heart of a generative form of resistance.
In acknowledging fragility as one of few universally felt truths in our divided world, the Biennale assembles a host of creative practices and objects spanning two millennia that variously speak to the vulnerabilities of people and places, past and present, near and far. Conceived as a collective statement authored through word, image, sound and movement by 200 artists and creatives, it calls on a community of resilient voices to draft a manifesto for a world that is blamelessly fragile.
