BREAKFAST VIEW OF AI WEIWEI, MAKING SENSE AT THE DESIGN MUSEUM WITH CURATORS JUSTIN MCGUIRK AND RACHEL HAJEK
Join us at the invitation of the Design Museum in Ai Weiwei’s Coloured House for a light breakfast followed by a before-hours tour of Making Sense with curators Justin McGuirk and Rachel Hajek. They will share their highlights as well as share what it was like to work with Ai Weiwei and his studio in creating this groundbreaking exhibition.
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.
The exhibition will see some of Weiwei’s most important works on display as well as commissioned pieces, which invite us to consider value, humanity, art and activism. The result of the exhibition is a meditation on value, drawing on the artist’s fascination with historical Chinese artefacts, placing their craftsmanship in dialogue with more recent history and urban development.
