This spring/summer, the Skirball invites you to delve into the life and work of Ai Weiwei. One of the world’s most socially engaged artists, Ai Weiwei has confronted issues ranging from the global refugee crisis to government censorship. Known for challenging the political status quo, he was detained by the Chinese government for eighty-one days in 2011 and then prohibited from traveling abroad until 2015. His position as a dissident artist has informed the tenor and reception of much of his recent work.
In anticipation of the exhibition Ai Weiwei: Trace at the Skirball, immerse yourself in the art and activism of Ai Weiwei with engaging programs and resources you can experience from home.
The exhibition Ai Weiwei: Trace and its related educational programs are made possible by support from the following Lead Donor:
