Ai Weiwei, Making Sense, The Design Museum, London, 2023Ai Weiwei: Making Sense, London (United Kingdom), The Design Museum, 7 april / 30 july 2023

Ai Weiwei is one of the most significant and recognised artists working today. Known around the world for his powerful art and activism, Ai does not differentiate between disciplines: his practice glides across art, architecture, design, film, collecting and curating. This major new exhibition, developed in collaboration with Ai Weiwei, 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’s 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. The exhibition will see some of Ai’s most important works displayed alongside collections of objects that have never been seen, and new commissions made for the exhibition. Not only is this Ai’s personal commentary on design, it is also a major opportunity for visitors to see his work through a new lens.
