An Art Installation at Alcatraz
Beijing-based Ai Weiwei is internationally regarded for creating work that "defies the distinction between art and activism", and his highly anticipated art installation on Alcatraz opened last weekend to the public. Sponsored by the FOR-SITE foundation, the piece "@Large: Ai Weiwei on Alcatraz" will be open through April 2015, and visiting the art is included as part of the National Park Service tour of Alcatraz at no extra charge.

The new installation @Large features a total of seven engaging pieces throughout the prison, including "Trace" - 176 portraits of prisoners of conscience from around the world crafted from legos, "Refraction" - a sculpture of metal found objects that brings to mind an enormous wing-like mobile, and "Stay Tuned" - a sound installation piece that occupies 12 cells typically not available for visitor observation. The pieces employ a range of media all set against the uniquely dramatic context of San Francisco's famous prison.

Extra wi-fi capabilities have been installed on the island in preparation for @Large, as it is critical to the artist that the pieces be shared on social media. Ai Weiwei hasn't been allowed to leave China since his passport was impounded in 2011, but through collaboration with Cheryl Haines of the FOR-SITE foundation (including visits to his Beijing studio with photos and plans of the prison as well as extra legos in hand) @Large looks like it's going to be well appreciated by locals and visitors alike.
