Smashing Exhibition

Last few weeks to see Ai Weiwei’s very moving show at the main galleries in the Royal Academy.
Exhibiting brave, provocative and visionary works that embrace the immensity of these historic spaces, Weiwei is not only a major contemporary artist but also a cultural phenomenon. 

Among the many, specifically created new works are a number of large-scale installations, as well as works showcasing everything from marble and steel to tea and glass.

Curated in collaboration with his studio in Beijing, Ai Weiwei explores a multitude of challenging themes, drawing on his own experience to comment on creative freedom, censorship and human rights, as well as examining contemporary Chinese art and society.
