AI WEIWEI

SOLO EXHIBITION
FOR-SITE Foundation, Alcatraz Island, California
@Large: Ai Weiwei on Alcatraz
September 27, 2014—April 26, 2015
http://www.for-site.org/

The Chinese artist Ai Weiwei is internationally renowned for work that defies the distinction between art and activism. In this exhibition of new works created specifically for Alcatraz, Ai responds to the island’s layered legacy as a 19th-century military fortress, a notorious federal penitentiary, a site of Native American heritage and protest, and now one of America’s most visited national parks. Revealing new perspectives on Alcatraz, the exhibition raises questions about freedom of expression and human rights that resonate far beyond this particular place.

KOTA EZAWA

PUBLIC ART INSTALLATION
Kota Ezawa: Boardwalk, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco, CA
June 28, 2014—November 30, 2015
http://www.ybca.org/kota-ezawa-boardwalk

San Francisco-based Kota Ezawa rebuilds a side view of the Seaside Heights boardwalk, which was devastated during Hurricane Sandy, in YBCA’s Third Street Courtyard. Titled Boardwalk, this bold architectural structure is transformed — the amusement park becomes a sculpture, and a courtyard becomes an amusement park — revealing the shared visual and experiential elements between these two environments. Restoring the boardwalk by proxy, the project, in the artist’s words, acts as a type of "visual disaster relief."
