Ernest Pignon-Ernest at the Popes’ Palace this summer

Street artist Ernest Pignon-Ernest is to take over the Grand Chapel of the Popes’ Palace from 29 June to 29 February 2020 with his new show, Ecce Homo.

Pignon-Ernest is considered the initiator of street art, and this exhibition looks back at his life to explain the artistic, intellectual and political paths he has explored for over 60 years. Artworks on loan from the Lelong & Co gallery in Paris, private collections, and the Montauban Museum are supplemented with photographs documenting his prolific work on streets all around the world.

Nearly 400 works will be on display, including photographs, charcoal and black ink drawings, collages and documents, bringing to life his artistic interventions from 1966 to the present day.

He’s slated to create a site-specific piece for Avignon in the Lower Treasury of the Popes’ Palace in January 2020.
