Ai Weiwei: According to What?

Ai Weiwei: According to What?

October 7, 2012 – February 24, 2013 (new opening date)

Museum: Hirshhorn Museum & Sculpture Garden

Location: Level 2

This major solo exhibition features approximately 25 works made since 2000 by Ai Weiwei (China, b. 1957), who is one of China's most prolific and provocative contemporary artists. Throughout his career, he has offered insights into the interrelationships between art, society, and individual experience and explored such universal topics as culture, history, politics, and tradition. The exhibition introduces viewers to the artist's broad spectrum of artistic practice, from sculpture, photography, and video to site-specific architectural installations and aims to reveal the rich and varied contexts that he has continuously interwoven. This exhibition is presented in conjunction with Perspectives: Ai Weiwei (May 12, 2012-April 7, 2013) at the Sackler Gallery of Art and Ai Weiwei: Circle of Animals/Zodiac Heads (April 19, 2012-March 17, 2013) at the Hirshhorn Museum.

Pronunciation key: Ai Weiwei = Eye Wayway
