One of the world’s leading contemporary artists is Ai Weiwei, a Chinese artist based in Germany who creates art that ranges from installation to being a consultant of the Beijing National stadium for the Olympics. A working documentary filmmaker in addition to creating art, much of Weiwei’s work is politically based and protests human rights violations. Arrested for a period in his native China, Weiwei was released but continued to be censored by the Chinese government. Ai Weiwei’s sculpture and installations have received international acclaim as he continues to win awards for both his art and also his efforts to draw awareness to global issues.

Saturday Lectures at LHUCA is an informal conversation over the life and work of contemporary artists. It’s a stress-free opportunity to examine the art and ideas that underlie much of the modern art world. Attendees are encouraged to ask questions and join the conversation.

This event is free to the public.

Join us for coffee and donuts!
