Musée Nicéphore Niépce
28, Quai des Messageries
Through his famous monumental portraits brushed in two-colors, Yan Pei-Ming tries to reach a kind of universality. A compulsive and persevering artist, he makes portraits in series, painting from memory or after photography.
This aspect particularly resonates in the Nicéphore Niépce museum's exhibition: several photographs of women and couples serve as a fertile source of inspiration for Yan Pei-Ming's creativity. Through a mix of charcoal and gouache the artist succeeds in rendering the brutality of real life and in intruding into the intimacy of these "ladies".

Opening: June 30, 7-9pm
Yan Pei Ming is widely considered to be one of the most important contemporary artists of his generation.
Yan Pei Ming will return to Sète to celebrate the 350th anniversary of the creation of the city's harbour, just as his previous exhibition in Rome heralded the 350th anniversary of the Villa Medici. In mid-2016, the Villa invited the artist to present a set of his works which had never been seen before.
At CRAC, the exhibition, Ruines du temps réel, will present a selection of his most recent works, including portraits, landscapes, historical paintings, as well as paintings produced specifically for the project.
Yan Pei Ming, who is more interested in humanity than in individuality, transcends the everyday life. Very much a man of his time, his paintings reflect his era and evoke our contemporary reality.
The opening of the exhibition Ruines du temps réel (Ruins in Real Time) at the CRAC coincides with the unveiling of the restoration of Yan Pei Ming's trio of wall paintings—Têtes (Heads)—at the Lycée Charles de Gaulle. The two projects bring together two key periods: the beginning of the artist's career and his latest works.

- The Disasters of war 1800-2014
- May 28, 2014 - October 6, 2014
The exhibition presents a rich set of representations arising from disenchantment with war, considered above all as a dealer in misfortunes from the beginning of the 19th century to our own time. Placed until then at the centre of society's values, it increasingly came to be considered by artists in all its facets, including its most dreadful consequences on human beings, on animals, on the countryside, and on cities and things.Read more
This multidisciplinary exhibition shows the major milestones of this little known history, through all kinds of media: painting, sculpture, graphic arts, photography, film, video, installations, comic strips, popular prints, newspaper cartoons, and more.

The Maeght Foundation invites philosopher and writer Bernard-Henri Lévy to curate an exhibition on the theme of "Painting and philosophy," offering an itinerary made up of seven "sequences" in order to understand the age-old battle between philosophy and painting, sometimes rivals, sometimes allies. One hundred or so ancient and contemporary works from public and private collections, both French and international, are brought together in this exhibition.
