Kunsthal Rotterdam is proud to present a large-scale exhibition by one of today’s most prominent artists, the activist, and critic of authoritarian power systems Ai Weiwei. We will have a guided tour explaining his installations, Lego bricks work, sculptures and many more.
In Search of Humanity will be his most comprehensive retrospective to date. Including paintings, cultural ready-mades, works made from LEGO bricks, sculptures, installations, photography, and video works, the exhibition will present an impressive overview of Ai Weiwei's over-four-decades-spanning career and feature key works from all his different creative periods.
This must-see exhibition offers an insight into the life of the world-famous Chinese artist and human rights activist Ai Weiwei, such as his childhood spent in exile as a result of the Cultural Revolution from 1966 to 1976, the suppressed students’ protests in Beijing, and his personal incarceration in 2011. His artworks show his quest for humanity and a better world.
The tour will be English spoken and only accessible for EUR-students. After the tour there is still time left until closing time to take a walk around by yourself through the rest of the exhibitions.
