Ai Weiwei: According to What?
Through August 10

When it comes to expressions of freedom, Ai Weiwei is a provocateur. The Shanghai resident’s new show extends his transgressive artistic dialogue with individual and human rights. Forty works spanning 20 years of his political activism are covered in Ai Weiwei: According to What? The oppressive structure of China’s political system has provided Weiwei with plenty of material for criticism. From ready-mades to photography and sculpture, this comprehensive survey of Ai Weiwei’s work is compelling and provocative.
