Just how fine is the line between art and politics? On July 23rd, INFORUM invites you to find out at a special, free screening of IFC Films’ Ai Wei Wei: Never Sorry. The debut documentary from Director Alison Klayman follows two years in the life of Chinese artist/dissident/father and activist, Ai Wei Wei. As China’s most famous contemporary artist and its most outspoken critic, Ai Wei Wei has captivated the international community with his controversial stands against censorship and his use of art and social media to organize the Chinese people. Join us for the film, followed by a Q&A with Cheryl Haines, Director of Haines Gallery in San Francisco and Ai Weiwei supporter. Don’t miss this inside story of a dissident for the digital age, and how he’s blurring the line between artistic and political expression.
