Announcing @Large: Ai Weiwei on Alcatraz
FOR-SITE is delighted to announce our next major project: @Large: Ai Weiwei on Alcatraz, opening in September 2014 and presented in partnership with the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy and the National Park Service. FOR-SITE is honored to collaborate with an artist of Ai Weiwei’s import to realize this unprecedented project, which will explore pressing themes central to Ai Weiwei’s life as artist and activist — the right to free expression, the irrepressible nature of creativity, and the role of art, artists, and individuals worldwide in shaping social change. In addition to serving as a powerful and unique forum for visitors to delve into Ai’s work and ideas, @Large: Ai Weiwei on Alcatraz will expand physical access to many areas of the island and prison traditionally restricted to the public.
