Ai Weiwei comes to DC

This spring through next year, the Sculpture Garden-Smithsonian will exhibit a sculpture by Ai Weiwei. Now, if you’re anything like me, you’re going who is this guy? I would first direct you to my Copenhagen at Christmas posting, where I talk about seeing an exhibit for Ai Weiwei at the Louisiana MOMA in Denmark. Ai Weiwei is a Chinese artist, who I mostly now know for his sculptures. Ai is currently being held prisoner by the Chinese government for speaking out. His work is definitely out there and outrageous at times, but well worth the visit.
