Born in Xiamen, China, in 1954 and based in Paris since 1989, Huang Yongping was an indispensable figure in China’s avant-garde art movements in the early 1980s. In 1986, he and several friends established 'Xiamen Dada', and in 1989, he went to France to participate in Magiciens de la Terre, a major exhibition at the Centre Pompidou. Huang has lived in France for many years, and due to his status as an immigrant and the cultural differences and collisions he has experienced, he 'takes on the East with the West and takes on the West with the East' in his work.Read More
Huang has shown in major exhibitions and museums around the world for the last two decades. He represented France in the 48th Venice Biennale in 1999; his travelling retrospective House of Oracles was shown at Walker Art Center, Minneapolis (2005), Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (2006), Vancouver Art Gallery (2007) and was received with critical acclaim. His recent solo exhibitions include Bâton Serpent at MAXXI, Rome (2014); Bâton Serpent III: Spur Track to the Left at Power Station of Art, Shanghai (2016); Empires at Monumenta 16, Grand Palais, Paris; and the latest group show Art and China after 1989: The Theater of the world (2017) in New York's Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum made his testament to the importance of his contribution to the art world.
