a powerful artist + powerful exhibit. m.
Artist: Ai Weiwei
Venue: neugerriemschneider, Berlin
Date: April 30 – June 4, 2011
“On April 3rd, Ai Weiwei was detained by Chinese authorities in Beijing. All demands made to the Chinese government regarding his right to a transparent and fair legal process have thus far been ignored. We are very concerned about the well-being of Ai Weiwei, as well as that of his family, staff, and friends. Yet, the massive international protests against Ai Weiwei’s detention provide some hope that those responsible in China will be moved to concede. Among many actions, the public solidarity leading museums have taken with Ai Weiwei is communicated by a petition initiated by the Guggenheim Foundation (for further information, please see www.change.org).”
