The Fourth Moscow Biennale of Contemporary Art is proud to announce the participation of Ai Weiwei, the prominent Chinese dissident artist, who will exhibit his video, "Beijing: The Second Ring", (2005). This artwork documents the two opposite views of traffic flow on the 33 bridges along Beijing’s Second Ring Road. The artist films each side (direction) of each bridge for 1 minute, which means 2 minutes for each bridge. The entire work is made of 66 segments (1 hour and 6 minutes).
