About This Event

Ai Weiwei (Chinese, b. Beijing, 1957) is one of China’s most prolific and provocative artists. Throughout his career, he has offered insights into the interrelations between art, society, and individual experience and explored such universal topics as culture, history, politics, and tradition. This major survey of his work will include examples from the broad spectrum of his artistic practice, from sculpture, photography, and video to sitespecific architectural installations, and aims to reveal the rich and varied contexts that he has continuously interwoven.

The exhibition, organized in close collaboration with the artist and his studio, premiered in Tokyo and will open at the Hirshhorn before traveling to other venues in North America.

Ai Weiwei: According to What? is organized by the Mori Art Museum, Tokyo and is curated by Mami Kataoka. The Hirshhorn’s presentation is coordinated by Hirshhorn deputy director and chief curator Kerry Brougher.
