Internationally renowned Chinese artist and activist Ai Weiwei is one of contemporary art's most newsworthy figures, noted for both his groundbreaking work and his outspoken stance on human rights, which ultimately resulted in his controversial 2011 detainment. In an astonishing new large-scale project, he turns his attention to Alcatraz—a place he could not visit because he was not permitted to leave China, but that stands as a world-famous symbol of both incarceration and protest. This book showcases the major exhibition presented by FOR-SITE Foundation of site-specific, multimedia installations and sculptures Ai Weiwei create for the island, on view from the fall of 2014 through the spring of 2015. Featuring beautiful photographs and thought-provoking text, At Large is the essential document of this remarkable happening from one of today's most celebrated artists.
