About the Exhibition

Ai Weiwei is one of the world’s most influential living artists and human rights activists, as well as one of China’s most formidable critics. Known for smashing conventions—and ceramics—with iconic works like Dropping a Han Dynasty Urn, Ai upends the cultural traditions and materials of his native China.

This highly-anticipated and timely exhibition explores the breaking of boundaries, both physical and symbolic, and considers how the artist’s ceramic works form a basis for his ongoing exploration of urgent social justice themes, including immigration and the repression of dissent.

Ai Weiwei: Unbroken features some of Ai’s most iconic works, including Sunflower Seeds and Han Dynasty Urn with Coca Cola Logo, as well as new work. Learn more
