Ai Weiwei - Lisson Gallery London - may 13 jul 16, 2011

"Lisson Gallery is proud to present a major survey show of work by Ai Weiwei to be held across both Bell Street spaces, London. The broad selection of key works from the past six years was agreed with the artist at the beginning of 2011.

Ai Weiwei is one of the leading cultural figures of his generation and consistently displays great courage in placing himself at risk to affect social change through his art. He serves as an example for legitimate social criticism and free expression both in China and internationally. "

Greg Hilty of  lisson gallery says:
'we are thrilled at the opportunity to bring to a UK public a selection of key works that demonstrate the range and sensibility
of ai weiwei. beautifully crafted, conceptually acute, poetically resonant, these works provide a concise overview of his concerns
as an artist.'

'colored vases', 2006
'marble chair', 2008, marble
'surveillance camera', 2006, marble
monumental junkyard', 2007, marble

 "Ai Weiwei was detained by authorities in Beijing while trying to board a flight to Hong Kong on 3 April and has not been seen or heard from since. Lisson Gallery, along with all his supporters in the UK and around the world, is alarmed by his detention and greatly concerned for his safety. Lisson Gallery is dedicated to staging the exhibition to fully convey to the public-at-large the cultural importance of Ai Weiwei. Lisson Gallery has a long history of working with political artists and strongly condemns any form of artistic suppression. Ai Weiwei’s studio and supporters are determined to proceed with all of his planned projects worldwide to celebrate the work of one of the most significant living artists, cultural figures, and champions of human rights.
