Write a 700-1000 word paper reporting on Ai Weiwei, including a description of the project you
chose to focus on and what you discovered regarding its purpose/message and public response.
Your introductory paragraph should identify the artwork/project including the artist’s name, the
title of the piece (in italics), the date it was created, and its materials.
Include a thesis statement in your opening paragraph – this might be a general statement on the
purpose of the piece you chose (and the rest of your paper should be specific points and examples
supporting this purpose including the choices the artist makes to help get the message across to
the viewer). This is not about YOUR opinion, but about what you have learned.
Again, you should describe the piece including the material(s) it is made from, its location (if
important), opinions, circumstances or events that the artists is reacting to (if any), the purpose or
message the artist is trying to convey, and the reaction of the public to the art and its message.
