Join curator Philip Tinari and architects Daniel Rosbottom and Simon Hartmann in a conversation exploring Ai Weiwei’s wide-ranging and lesser known Architectural practice.

Architecture is an important but perhaps lesser-known aspect of Ai Weiwei’s practice. Along with a huge number of buildings realised over a decade with his studio FAKE design and in collaboration with international architects, architectural thinking permeates his art, writing and curatorial practice.

In this discussion, renowned curator and critic Philip Tinari and architects Daniel Rosbottom and Simon Hartmann investigate Ai’s architectural sensibilities across his wide-ranging career.

All tickets include a drink.
