Following his controversial arrest in 2011—when he was mysteriously detained for 81 days with no outside contact and no official charges—dissident artist, Ai Weiwei, continues to find new ways to voice his criticisms of the Chinese government through his powerful exhibitions. On the Table takes a look at the Chinese artist’s multifaceted career as a photographer, sculptor, architect, and documentary film producer, through a collection of over 40 works, many of which share a common theme: exposing the Chinese government’s practices, violations of human rights, and seeking greater freedom for China. In addition to displaying some of his key pieces, On the Table also includes a number of previously unseen works, and some new productions and installations created specifically for this exhibition. Ai Weiwei is active on Instagram and Twitter; find him @aiww on both platforms.
