Opening

On the Table. Ai Weiwei is a specially designed show by Ai Weiwei for La Virreina Image Centre. It aims to give an idea of the scope of his artistic career, from his beginnings in 1980s New York to his present-day status as the best-known and most influential Chinese artist in the world. Work by this media-savvy activist calling for greater freedom in China can now be found in leading contemporary art museums and collections worldwide. Ai Weiwei makes use of a number of artistic practices, including photography and documentary film, sculpture, design and architecture, in operations that transcend formats and disciplines to create images that infiltrate and propagate through social networks and popular culture. In addition to several key pieces for appreciating this artist’s work, the show at La Virreina Image Centre will also present unseen work, new productions and an installation by Ai Weiwei specially designed for this exhibition.
