Given his remarkable life and work, Ai Weiwei (b. 1957, Beijing) stands as a unique international figure. He is both one of the most celebrated contemporary artists and one of the world’s most prominent and respected human rights activists. The exhibition draws on many aspects of his career as a visual artist and architect, and is informed by both his own life experience and the plight of displaced people. In 2016, Ai and his film team traveled to 23 countries and 40+ refugee camps while filming his documentary feature, Human Flow.
