Ai Weiwei is one of the world’s most influential artists and human rights activists, as well as one of China’s most formidable critics. Known for smashing conventions – and ceramics –with iconic works like Dropping a Han Dynasty Urn, he upends the cultural traditions and materials of his native China. This highly anticipated and timely exhibition at Toronto’s Gardiner Museum explores the breaking of boundaries, both physical and symbolic, and considers how the artist’s ceramic works form a basis for his ongoing exploration of urgent social justice themes, including immigration, freedom of speech, and the repression of dissent.
