1000 Years of Joys and Sorrows
We invite you to explore the world of Ai Weiwei, who has been hailed as “one of the most important artists working in the world today” by the Financial Times and as “an eloquent and seemingly unsilenceable voice of freedom” by the New York Times. He shares excerpts from his forthcoming memoir, 1000 Years of Joys and Sorrows, which tells a century-long epic tale of China through the story of his own extraordinary life and the legacy of his father—the nation’s most celebrated poet.
