Artists often look to their cultural roots in their search for artistic inspiration, and the work of Chinese artist and political activist Ai Weiwei provides a powerful example of this practice.

On the opening day of the exhibition "Ai Weiwei Circle of Animals/Zodiac Heads" join pianist Amber Yui-Hsuan Liao as she explores two composers who took similar paths in their musical explorations: Frédéric Chopin, who celebrated his Polish heritage in his Polonaises and Mazurkas, and Manuel de Falla, who honored the Spanish Folk tradition in his Fantasía Baética. Liao, known for her both her outstanding technique and her ability to bring out the color and richness of classical music’s folk elements, will provide a thoughtful and lively musical counterpart to Ai’s cultural and artistic explorations.

Space is limited, and reserving tickets in advance is recommended.

Before the concert, enjoy a docent-led Prelude Tour of the Ai Weiwei Circle of Animals/Zodiac Heads exhibition at 1 or 2 PM. Prelude Tours help place the musical performance in context of the art on view. No registration is necessary for the tour.
