Kunsthaus Graz will open 'Ai Weiwei Interlacing,' a large-scale exhibition of Ai's photographic and video work—taken over from the Fotomuseum Winterthur—which will put the spotlight on Ai Weiwei the communicator and indefatigable remembrancer, an interlacing and multichannel-communicating artist. The show will open Sep 17 and run until Jan 15, 2012.

Ever since he returned to China, Ai has tirelessly documented everyday realities of the urban environment and society.  The photographs of the radical changes to the urban built fabric, the search for earthquake victims, and the destruction of his Shanghai studio will be presented along with art-photographic projects, the documenta Fairytale project and mobile-phone photographs.
