Ai WeiweiChinese artist Ai Weiwei is as well known for his political activism as he is for his art - which has seen him filling Tate Modern's Turbine Hall with thousands of handmade porcelain sunflower seeds in 2010, and taking on the role as artistic consultant on the Beijing National Stadium for the 2008 Olympics. He was also one third of the creative team which designed the 2012 summer pavilion for the Serpentine Gallery. From September 2015, China's most famous international artist, as well as its most outspoken domestic critic will be the subject of a landmark exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts where major works spanning his career are shown alongside new pieces including three big installations.
