LONDON.- Lisson Gallery announces that it is now representing artist Ai Weiwei. Widely considered to be one of the most significant cultural figures of his generation in China and internationally, Ai Weiwei successfully occupies multiple roles as a conceptual artist, architect, curator, designator, film-maker, publisher and activist.

"We have had a growing appreciation of Ai Weiwei's work and achievement over the last few years and are very pleased that this most significant world of artists has agreed to work with us. The idea-based and sculptural nature of his work adds significantly to Lisson Gallery's evolving history." - Nicholas Logsdail

Using a variety of formal languages with both traditional and innovative methods of production, Ai links the past with the present and explores the geopolitical, economic and cultural realities affecting the world with humour and compassion.

Ai Weiwei's Unilever series commission 'Sunflower Seeds' is currently on display in Tate's Modern Turbine Hall until 2 May 2011. Among numerous international projects planned for the next year are exhibitions of Ai's photographic works at the Fotomuseum Winterhur, Switzerland and of architectural projects at Kunsthaus Bregenz, Austria.

Lisson Gallery will present an exhibition of works bu Ai Weiwei in May 2011.
