There is a terrific Ai Weiwei ("According to What") exhibit at the Hirshhorn right now. I didn't know almost anything about him until visiting it but I am obsessed.
Weiwei's art explore the relationship of the individual and society. Many of his pieces are intended to question the values of self and society and are thought provoking. If you are in DC, I hope you get a chance to check out this inspiring exhibit.
