5 upcoming DC exhibits for art lovers, Instagram addicts

WASHINGTON — Whether you missed the wildly popular and Instagram-worthy “Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors” at the Hirshhorn, or you’re craving for more like it, here are five upcoming art exhibits around D.C.

From a new Hirshhorn installation featuring storied dissident artist Ai Weiwei to a digital world created in the Southwest Waterfront area, these works aim to challenge and captivate.

Ai Weiwei: Trace at Hirshhorn — June 28, 2017 through Jan. 1, 2018

This solo exhibition from Chinese contemporary artist Ai Weiwei makes its East Coast debut. “Trace” is comprised of portraits made of Lego blocks of people who the artist considers to be “activists, prisoners of consciences, and advocates of free speech,” according to the Hirshhorn’s website.

Ai Weiwei will also give the annual James T. Demetrion Lecture the night before his show opens. Free tickets to the lecture will be available online on June 19.

Don’t forget to also check out the Hirshhorn’s other upcoming exhibits.

Admission is free.
