Under the curation of Henri Loyrette, the Chinese painter is invited to Avignon for a double project, in the Great Chapel of the Palais des Papes and in the rooms on the ground floor of the Hôtel de Montfaucon, at the Lambert Collection.

Famous portrait painter of the great figures of the past and contemporary history, he will deploy in the Great Chapel immense unpublished portraits of Popes in the form of real installations and which will recall the past of the places. At the Lambert Collection his portraits of politicians, thinkers of our time and anonymous will dialogue with historical subjects, revealing the power and the power of art through the last thirty years of the artist’s career.
