Her­alded as China’s most renowned in­ter­na­tional artist, photographer Ai Wei­wei has caused waves by be­ing a vo­cal critic of his home coun­try’s govern­ment (he was even de­tained by China for 81 days). This ret­ro­spec­tive at the Mu­seum of Con­tem­po­rary Pho­tog­ra­phy, which runs through July 2, traces Wei­wei from his days in the 1980’s East Vil­lage to his po­lit­i­cally-in­flu­enced work to­day, which cen­ters on global hu­man­i­tar­ian crises. Free ad­mis­sion. 600 S. Michi­gan Ave., 312.663.5554, mocp.org
