Ai Weiwei on Beijing | Artist Cities – TateShots
The city and environment in which an artist lives and works naturally influences their ideas, practice and form. Here we focus on Beijing and its most famous formerly detained resident, Ai Weiwei.
Artist Cities is a new series co-produced with The Guardian, in which we explore the native or adopted cities of a range of major international artists. We learn how each artist has identified and developed a relationship with the landscape and city they call home and how such connections materialise in their work.
