Yan Pei-Ming Ruins In Real Time

30 June—1 September 2016
Centre Régional D'art Contemporain

Centre Régional D'art Contemporain - Languedoc Roussillon Midi Pyrénées
26 Quai Aspirant Herber
34200 Sete, France

 

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.
