Tweaked Posted May 30, 2017 Share Posted May 30, 2017 Ai Weiwei: Trace at Hirshhorn June 28, 2017 thru January 1, 2018 "Ai Weiwei’s monumental installation Trace portrays individuals from around the world whom the artist and various human rights groups consider to be activists, prisoners of conscience, and advocates of free speech. Each of these 176 portraits comprises thousands of plastic LEGO® bricks, assembled by hand and laid out on the floor. The work foregrounds Ai Weiwei’s own experiences of incarceration, interrogation, and surveillance. In 2011, he was detained by the Chinese government for eighty-one days and then prohibited from traveling abroad until 2015." Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
