Fondazione Prada presents a personal exhibition of the Chinese painter Liu Ye curated by Udo Kittelmann. Inaugurated for the first time at Prada Rong Zhai in Shanghai in 2018, the project continues in Milan and includes a selection of 35 paintings made starting from 1992. The exhibition will be open until September 28, 2020. Liu’s intimate and sensual imagination Ye finds its multiple sources of inspiration in literature, art history and popular culture of the western and eastern world. The artist tells atmospheres that evoke introspection, purity and suspension. In his works, fairy tale and irony coexist, crossed by a parodic vein. Liu Ye stressed that “each work is my self-portrait”.
