IMA Curator of Contemporary Art Sarah Green at Butler University
Jordan Hall 141, Butler University Campus
Ai Weiwei is known as one of China’s most provocative and vocal artists. His focus on human rights and social change eventually led to his nearly three-month detainment by Chinese authorities in 2011. Since his arrest, Ai Weiwei has been kept under constant surveillance by the government, having a tremendous impact upon his work. Curator of Contemporary Art Sarah Green discusses the Indianapolis Museum of Art’s featured exhibition (April 5–July 21, 2013), highlighting a broad spectrum of the artist’s practice—from sculpture, photography, and video to site-specific architectural installations.
Public programs and opening celebration for Ai Weiwei: According to What? are sponsored by Barnes & Thornburg LLP.
