Ai Weiwei exhibit - A Day at the Museum

  • Jan 11, 2014 · 1:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

This will be the first major international survey of this vital artist's multifaceted artistic oeuvre. This exhibition reveals Ai's practice as emerging from an ever-questioning dialogue with the social, political and cultural positions of his native China and the world at large. Ai works in a range of media, including architecture and design, and this exhibition will feature works of the last 20 years, including photography and the large-scale sculptures for which the artist is best known.

Ai Weiwei is not only a renowned contemporary artist but a political activist as well, he was once arrested in Beijing for 81 days without any official charges - he's been openly critical of the Chinese government's stance on democracy and human rights.

Free entrance and a complimentary guided tour included.

    Even though the challenging logistics with such a big crowd and the parking nightmare, this ended up being a great day, it was so cool to meet up with you guys, to see so many people turn up for the sake of Art at an amazing new location and setting, and dinner afterwards was fun as usual!

    Thanks again G, for arranging everything. It was boat load of fun!(pun intended) A lot of the installations were very cool & thought provoking, the museum is a fantastic space with equally fantastic backdrop of the bay. Bongo's afterwards was spent with great company & good food. Overall, another terrific event!
