The Ai Weiwei Exhibition – Royal Academy London

On Sunday I went to the Ai Weiwei exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts in London. Ai Weiwei is a Chinese contemporary artist and activist that became widely known in Britain after his sunflower seeds installation in Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall in 2010. The exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts looks at the last 20 years of his work, including political pieces relating to his time under arrest in China and to the 2008 Sichuan earthquake. Here some quick photos from my visit to the Ai WeiWei exhibition…

I thought the exhibition was very interesting and powerful. “He is a man who is trying to change the world for the better: not through violence, or a political party or international business interests – but through art.”

I love going to museum, and I definitely recommend checking this exhibition out! For more information about the Ai Weiwei exhibition click HERE. Are you also a museum lover?
