Ai Weiwei: According to What?
Chinese artist Ai Weiwei creates art that poses questions about the ways in which art and culture interrelate with society and how society interrelates with individual existence. Featuring his most significant works since 2000, this catalog offers insight into Ai's use of simple forms and artistic methods, his preoccupation with the traditional design of furniture and other daily objects, and his iconoclastic attitudes toward traditional values and political authority. Includes works in sculpture, photography, video, and site-specific architectural installations. Hardcover: 176 pages. Dimensions: 8.75 x 11".
Authors: Kerry Brougher, Mami Kataoka and Charles Merewether
