Event Details

“Glass, a special material and a part of our daily life, bears witness to joy, anxiety and worry in our reality. In its presence we reflect upon the relationships between life and death, and between tradition and reality.” – Ai Weiwei.

A solo show featuring a new glass series by Ai Weiwei on the island of San Giorgio Maggiore, Venice.

Works to be exhibited include the world’s largest Murano glass sculpture alongside a network of weaving roots, unexpected LEGO pieces and a selection of iconic works.

Contextualised within Venice’s spectacular Basilica of San Giorgio Maggiore, the exhibition will explore themes in Ai Weiwei’s practice: nature, spirituality, and the continual fascinations of the contemporary world.
