Ai Weiwei Solo Exhibition @ Magasin 3

This month marks the debut of controversial, contemporary Chinese artist Ai Weiwei’s first solo

This month marks the debut of controversial, contemporary Chinese artist Ai Weiwei‘s first solo exhibition on Swedish soil. Curated by Tessa Praun at Magasin 3 in Stockholm, the exhibition focuses on the artist’s politically-driven work and addresses mass production, international trade, and socialism as they relate to present-day China and Chinese culture. A commentary on the value of art as well as Mao’s Cultural Revolution and its disregard for China’s past, the exhibit is also home to a reading room that provides articles, interviews, videos and descriptions of Ai Weiwei’s artwork, highlighting his push for social change in China. The Ai Weiwei solo exhibition at Magasin 3 opened to the public on February 3 and is set to remain open through June 10, 2012.
