Ai Weiwei’s defiance on display in Vancouver
Thursday December 18th, 2014
A new sculpture by acclaimed Chinese artist and activist Ai Weiwei unveiled Wednesday for the Vancouver Biennale may initially look underwhelming. But the work has more going for it than at first appearance.
The horizontal sculpture is another defiant gesture by Ai Weiwei against Chinese government officials for the way they continue to treat him and many other ordinary Chinese citizens.
