      Virtual Talk | A Conversation with Ai Weiwei

      In this rare speaking engagement, hear from celebrated visual artist, filmmaker, and political activist Ai Weiwei as he explores his vast body of work in the context of social justice. Imprisoned by Chinese authorities in 2011 without cause, Ai has dedicated his life and career to speaking out against human-rights violations around the globe. In this virtual conversation with Skirball curator Yael Lipschutz, Ai discusses how he views the interconnectivity of human suffering as stemming from cultural and economic systems that value profit rather than human life. Yet Ai Weiwei, in his own words, reminds us that although the world's problems are deep and complex, “we hope for the better.”

      Can’t make the streaming event? A Conversation with Ai Weiwei will be available to view on the Skirball’s YouTube channel following the premiere date.

      This program is presented in association with the exhibition Ai Weiwei: Trace.
