Tickets now available for 'Ai Weiwei: Making Sense' at the Design Museum, London
17 January 2023
From 7 April to 30 July 2023, London's Design Museum presents the major exhibition 'Ai Weiwei: Making Sense'.
Developed in collaboration with the artist, the exhibition will be the first to present his work as a commentary on design and what it reveals about our changing values. Through his engagement with material culture, Ai explores the tension between past and present, hand and machine, precious and worthless, construction and destruction.
The exhibition draws on Ai fascination with historical Chinese artefacts, placing their traditional craftsmanship in dialogue with the more recent history of demolition and urban development in China. The result is a meditation on value – on histories and skills that have been ignored or erased. Some of the artist’s most important works will be displayed alongside collections of objects that have never been seen and new commissions made for the exhibition.
