Product story

Ai Weiwei is published to coincide with the major exhibition at the Royal Academy – the first UK showing of his work on such a scale. The Academy will welcome specially created installations and artworks, constructed from materials as diverse as marble, bicycles and furniture. Ai has taken a keen interest in the publication, not only designing pages but also creating a new artwork that is reproduced on the cover.
