NEVER SORRY

never sorry

Acclaimed artist Ai Weiwei, his assistants and wife were arrested last Sunday while attempting to board a flight to Hong Kong in Beijing. While his assistants and wife have been released, Ai Weiwei is sadly still missing. The Chinese police have not provided any indication of his whereabouts or why he is being detained.

Over the last 30 years Ai has been a powerful force in the art world and has also been an outspoken critic of the Chinese government. While many speculate that he’s received “leeway” for his criticism over the years due to his global popularity and family ties – his father is a famous Chinese poet – it appears that that time has come to an end. We sincerely hope that Ai Weiwei is safely released. Just before reading about the news of his detention, we came across a great Q&A with Alison Klayman, Director of the upcoming documentary film Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry. Check it out for more information about this influential artist.
