The world-famous Chinese artist Ai Weiwei is currently exhibiting at the Vito Schnabel Gallery in St. Moritz. Titled Zodiac, the works in the exhibition are made of surprising materials.
Born in Beijing in 1957, Ai Weiwei’s work deals with the serious changes taking place in China since the country’s economic opening. Core themes are human rights violations, freedom of expression, economic exploitation and environmental pollution. The cosmopolitan, social activist, creative visionary and provocative artist deals with injustice and truth, stands up for humanity and fundamentally confronts economic, political and social systems of power.
