This third show paid homage to Ai Weiwei’s Unilever Series commission Sunflower Seeds, millions of small individually hand crafted porcelain works. Weiwei invited the viewer to look again at the ‘Made in China’ phenomenon and the geo-politics of cultural and economic exchange today. Weiwei has united people and drawn attention to the global significance of free creative expression.

Cultivate focused on the international responses to Ai Weiwei’s practise, combining traditional materials and techniques of making with political assertion. Themes around multiples, capitalism, tradition and free speech are all apparent in this exhibition.

The show brings together a collection of works from:

Phoebe Cummings, UK
Marysa Dowling, UK
Escola Secundária Emídio Navarro, Portugal
Riversdale school, UK
CIEP 441 - Mané Garrincha, Brazil
Manoj Pandey, India
