UNITED STATES
NEW YORK  •  Queens Museum of Art  •  Ongoing
 
One of the leading figures in the Beijing-based movement of "Cynical Realism" that emerged following the 1989 student demonstrations in Tiananmen Square, Yue Minjun has since become a pioneering figure in Chinese contemporary art.  Parlaying his iconic smiling self-portrait into his signature motif, he has gained an international following. Yue Minjun and the Symbolic Smile features bronze and polychrome sculptures, paintings and drawings.
