Ernest Pignon-Ernest, the echo of the world


At the Doyenné – Brioude (Auvergne) from July 1st  to October 15th , 2023

For the 5th exhibition at the Doyenné, Jean-Louis Prat, curator, has chosen to present the works of contemporary artist Ernest Pignon-Ernest.

French artist known for his original approach to urban space, both a mixture of street art and poetry, Ernest Pignon-Ernest uses public space as a canvas to question contemporary social and political issues.

Discovering the work of Ernest Pignon-Ernest is a face-to-face encounter that invites us to feel all the power and emotion of the subjects he seizes. His ephemeral works evolve over time, depending on weather conditions and on the interaction of passers-by with the work.

The Michelin Foundation is committed to the territories and proud to contribute to the cultural dynamism of Auvergne by supporting the Doyenné de Brioude, a heritage setting for contemporary art.

Do not miss this exhibition at the Doyenné, in Brioude, from July 1st until October 15th!
