Understanding Ai Weiwei

For those who haven’t heard, Ai Weiwei: According to What? opened last week at the IMA. Ai Weiwei is a revolutionary artist and activist, known for his constant battle against Chinese government. Ai’s works tell a story—a story of oppression, political corruption, and a fight for equality. But to fully understand the context in which his works were created, a little reading may be required. Take a look at the links posted below to learn more about Ai Weiwei. The articles will provide a little extra insight into Ai and his works.

    Ai Weiwei certainly piques my interest. The pot arrangement is striking to say the least. I will educate myself more on Ai and his activist background. Obviously he also finds time to create exceptional art.
