Ai Weiwei’s new show at Alcatraz

A stunning exhibition. One to make you think, discuss, react ….

“Chinese artist Ai Weiwei talks about his newest exhibition at the Alcatraz prison. Take a tour of his large scale installations using Lego, traditional kites and porcelain flowers at the famous San Francisco penitentiary 

The show also features portraits of political prisoners and exiles – including NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden. Ai, who is unable to leave China after his passport was confiscated by authorities three years ago, planned and designed the exhibition from his Beijing studio.”
