2022 UK exhibition at Southbank Centre
Curated by Ai Weiwei
27 October – 18 December
Exhibition Space, Level 1, Royal Festival Hall, Southbank Centre
2022 marks the 60th anniversary of the Koestler Awards. We are delighted to announce that the curator of the annual UK exhibition at Southbank Centre will be Ai Weiwei!
Every year we ask our entrants for ideas for people to invite to curate one of our shows. Ai Weiwei has been suggested by several entrants every year. And so we are delighted to say that he has said ‘yes’.
He will spend time with us this summer looking at the thousands of pieces of visual artwork, music and writing entered into the 2022 Koestler Awards, and will select which pieces will be displayed at London’s Southbank Centre.
To mark Koestler Arts’ 60th birthday, Ai Weiwei wants this exhibition to be ‘the most ambitious yet’, and we can’t wait to see his vision come to life.
Southbank Centre will be closed on 15 November, so there will be no access to the exhibition on this date.
