Ai Weiwei:Rapture

Ai Weiwei’s solo exhibition, Rupture, is on view from June 4 to November 28, 2021, at The Cordoaria Nacional in Lisbon, Portugal. Curated by Marcello Dantas, this is Ai Weiwei's first major solo exhibition in Portugal presenting around 80 works. The exhibition includes Ai Weiwei’s most iconic works, as well as original pieces produced in Portugal that explore the country's traditional artisanal techniques.

The themes running throughout the exhibition derive from the various meanings in English for the word 'rapture': a transcendent moment connecting the bodily and the spiritual dimensions; the hijacking of someone’s rights and freedoms; and the connection between sensory enthusiasm and ecstasy.
