Spotlight on Ai Weiwei
We take a closer look at the contemporary Chinese artist Ai Weiwei in our AK Contemporary series this evening. Assistant Curator of Education Jessica DiPalma will give a lecture at 7:30 pm and a screening of the documentary Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry, 2012, will follow at 8 pm.
The Albright-Knox recently acquired three of Ai Weiwei’s Moon Chests, 2008. While these works are not currently on view, we invite you to come tonight to learn more about this dissident artist who continually blurs the boundaries of art and politics.
