Artists often look to their cultural roots in search of artistic inspiration, and the work of Chinese artist and political activist Ai Weiwei provides a powerful example of this practice.
On the opening day of the exhibition “Ai Weiwei: Circle of Animals/Zodiac Heads,” join pianist Amber Yui-Hsuan Liao as she explores Frédéric Chopin, who celebrated his Polish heritage in his Polonaises and Mazurkas, and Manuel de Falla, who honored the Spanish Folk tradition in his “Fantasía Baética.” Known for her outstanding technique and ability to bring out the color and richness of classical music’s folk elements, Yui-Hsuan Liao will provide a thoughtful and lively musical counterpart to Ai’s cultural and artistic explorations.
