Art21 provides unparalleled access to the artist’s voice—

“Often when you’re in the process of realizing an image, it’s going somewhere else. If that tangent starts going off in a place that feels more exciting, that’s what I go with.”

Ursula von Rydingsvard

“From early on, very early on, I understood that art is not about what you say. It’s about these other things that you don’t say.”

Cai Guo-Qiang

“During the days in detention, I thought most about the moon.”

Ai Weiwei
