Ai Weiwei at the RA was the groundbreaking cultural phenomenon of 2015. This immersive digital tour is a chance to revisit the seminal exhibition, or experience it for the first time online.

An earlier version of this page was published in January 2016.

Take an immersive tour of the galleries from anywhere in the world, accompanied by commentary from the exhibition’s curators and interviews with the artist himself. Feel free to explore our galleries at your own pace, and in any order you choose.

With a voiceover from Channel 4 News anchor Jon Snow, the tour consists of navigable 360º imagery, video and audio channels. A huge range of specially-created video helps to uncover the meaning, context and technical detail of Ai Weiwei’s work.

Ai Weiwei 360 is available on desktop, tablet or smartphone, using just an internet browser. The first exhibition to be captured in photorealistic stereoscopic 3D, it is also available on Google Cardboard.
