The Ai Weiwei Interview – artmarketblog.com

aiweiwei1 300x229 The Ai Weiwei Interview   artmarketblog.comIn 2008 I filmed Ai Weiwei’s ‘Under Construction’ exhibition at the Sherman Contemporary Art Foundation (SCAF) in Sydney, Australia as well as a brief interview with Ai, but because the gallery was so noisy and the lighting less than ideal I decided not to use the footage.  Considering that the arrest of Ai has generated so much media attention I thought that I would share this video in the hope that it will help generate some positive publicity for Ai.  I urge anyone who reads this post to sign the online petition started by the moz screenshot The Ai Weiwei Interview   artmarketblog.commoz screenshot 1 The Ai Weiwei Interview   artmarketblog.comSolomon R. Guggenheim Foundation calling for the release of Ai.  The petition can be found here:

    I am one of those men who wanted Ai to be released. He’s just an artist expressing himself through art. I admire his courage and his ability as an artist. What he did was just right! I am in with the petition. I wanted Ai be free! !
