Free Screening of Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry This Friday at MCASD LJ

Ai Weiwei was named the most powerful artist in the world by by ArtReview. In April 2011, China's most celebrated contemporary artist, and its most outspoken domestic critic, disappeared into police custody for three months. Needless to say, he quickly became China's most famous missing person.

While working as a journalist in Beijing, first-time director Alison Klayman was given unprecedented access to the celebrated artist, as well as his family and others close to him. According to the press release, "In the years she filmed, government authorities shut down Ai's blog, beat him up, bulldozed his newly built studio, and held him in secret detention--while Time Magazine named him a runner-up for 2011's Person of the Year."

The film, which took home the Special Jury Prize at Sundance 2012, is being screened in conjunction with "Ai Weiwei: Zodiac Heads/Circle of Animals: Gold." The exhibition of WeiWei's work can be seen through the end of the month at MCASD Downtown.

Klayman's documentary screens this Friday night in MCASD's Sherwood Auditorium, 700 Prospect Street, La Jolla. The event is free. Tickets for the screening are available at both MCASD locations. They will also be available at the Box Office on Friday, July 20 beginning at 5 PM.

Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry is scheduled to open commercially in San Diego on August 3rd
