Founder of the group Xiamen Dada in China in the 1980s, Huang Yong Ping was invited by Jean-Hubert Martin to participate in the seminal exhibition “Les Magiciens de la Terre” at the Centre Pompidou and at the Grande Halle de la Villette in Paris in 1989.

A great travelling retrospective was held between 2005 and 2008 at the Walker Art Center of Minneapolis, MASS MoCA in North Adam (Massachusetts), and at the UCCA in Beijing. In 1999 he represented France at the 48th Venice Biennale with Jean-Pierre Bertrand.

His work is currently exhibited at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art until March 2022 and at M+ Hong Kong until October 2022.

Winner of the Wolfgang Hahn Prize (Museum Ludwig, Cologne, Germany) in 2016, Huang Yong Ping was the artist invited by the Ministère de la Culture for the 7th edition of Monumenta, with his work Empires presented in the Nef of the Grand Palais in Paris, from May to June 2016.
