“Ai Wei Wei became widely known in Britain after his sunflower seeds installation in Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall in 2010. This was the first major institutional survey of his work ever held in the UK and bridged over two decades in his extraordinary career. Curated in collaboration with Ai Weiwei from his studio in Beijing, the RA presented some of his most important works from the time he returned to China from the US in 1993 right up to the present day. Among new works created specifically for the RA, there was a number of large scale installations, as well as works showcasing everything from marble to steel to tea ans glass. With typical boldness, the chosen works explored a multitude of challenging themes, drawing on his own experience to comment on creative freedom, censorship and human rights, as well as examining contemporary Chinese art and society.”
