Collection: Ai Weiwei

China, b. 1957

Ai Weiwei is one of the most well-known, influential, and prolific artists active in China today. Working in sculpture, photography, film, installation, design, music, and architecture, Ai engages political and cultural criticism to investigate instances of government corruption and cover-ups, confronting China's stance on democracy and human rights. Ai often uses aesthetic strategies related to Conceptual Art as well as readymade objects in the lineage of Marcel Duchamp (who, along with Andy Warhol, profoundly influenced Ai's artistic practice), frequently in direct juxtaposition with traditional Chinese materials and production methods. 

 

Ai’s work has been shown in major solo exhibitions at New York’s Brooklyn Museum, Munich’s Pinakothek der Moderne, Seville’s Centro Andaluz de Arte Contemporaneo, and Washington D.C.’s Smithsonian Institution, among many others.
