Yan Pei Ming - Games of Power AVIGNON

Yan Pei Ming is invited to Avignon for an unprecedented double exhibition entitled 'Jeux de pouvoir': he will display not only in the ground floor rooms in the Hôtel de Montfaucon at the Collection Lambert, but also in the Grande Chapelle at the Palace of the Popes.

An essential figure in contemporary painting, famous for his portraits of Mao Zedong, Bruce Lee and Barack Obama, for his interpretations of some of the greatest masterpieces in art — Mona Lisa, le Déjeuner sur l’herbe, the Calling of Saint Matthew — or of great events in contemporary history, Yan Pei Ming has unceasingly faced art history and the Institutions that enshrine it including the Louvre, Villa Medicis , Orsay museum, Gustave Courbet museum, Petit Palais…

In 2020, echoing the history of the Papal city of Avignon, his work will be displayed in the Grande Chapelle in the famous Gothic palace, in a series of monumental works involving the popes, specially created for this event. In resonance with the force of the images of these fascinating persons, he will also be showing at the Collection Lambert until September 26th, in a series of works involving the most influential individuals of current history. A veritable archaeology of games of power throughout history.
