The Heong Gallery at Downing College, UK

Ai Weiwei's first exhibition in Cambridge, held at The Heong Gallery, Downing College from 17 June until 9 October 2016, focuses on two popular aspects of his work: cubes and trees. Curated by John Tancock, the exhibition includes a number of works never before seen in the UK, alongside a film made this year on the island of Lesbos in Greece, where Ai Weiwei has been working with refugees as they arrive in Europe.

Ai Weiwei is notable for the breadth of his interests, which include not only his art practice but also architecture, literature, political and social issues and above all, human rights and freedom of speech. The exhibition in Cambridge invites visitors to engage with the grounds of the college, where Ai Weiwei's trees will form an uplifting habitable circle in the main quadrangle alongside existing trees and the College Chapel. His Tree from 2010 will also be on display at the new Tate Modern, which opens to the public on 17 June 2016.
