The Artist's Sketchbook accompanying volume S of Matador magazine brings together the series entitled 'Indomeni Laundremat' by the famous Chinese artist and activist Ai Weiwei.
A total of 24 works selected personally by the artist together in a unique publication that will delight contemporary art enthusiasts and Weiwei's fans alike.
Ai Weiwei: On the Table surveys the full scope of Weiwei's career, from his early days in 1980s New York to his present-day status as the best-known and most influential Chinese artist in the world. Work by this media-savvy activist calling for greater freedom in China can now be found in leading contemporary art museums and collections worldwide; the image of his taunting, irreverent middle finger imposed atop touristy monuments and landscape photos has become ubiquitous, his sunflower seed installations iconic. This volume includes previously unseen new work, as well as a range of key pieces from the past 35 years, presented in a beautiful clothbound format.
