Ai Weiwei at the RA was the cultural phenomenon of the year. If you weren’t lucky enough to see the show, this is your chance to experience it online.
Wherever you are, you can enjoy an immersive tour of the galleries, alongside commentary from the exhibition’s curators and interviews with the artist himself. With this groundbreaking online experience, you are free to explore our galleries at your own pace and in any order you choose.
Introduced by RA Artistic Director Tim Marlow and WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, and with a voiceover from Channel 4 News anchor Jon Snow, our tour consists of navigable 360º imagery, video and audio channels. A huge range of specially-created video helps you to discover the meaning, context and technical detail of Ai Weiwei’s work.
You can explore Ai Weiwei 360 on your desktop, tablet or smartphone using just your internet browser. But this is also the first exhibition to be captured in photorealistic stereoscopic 3D. It is available on both Samsung Gear VR and Google Cardboard.Event Site
