A Very Special Opening: Ai Weiwei
17 September 2015
On Wednesday, a very special and long anticipated exhibition opening took place, that was of course the arrival of Ai Weiwei and his first UK exhibition since his release from China. Ai Weiwei is a Chinese contemporary artist and activist, who was imprisoned by the Chinese authorities for speaking his mind.
I was lucky to be invited to the opening party at the RA, along with the likes of Grayson Perry and many other big art figures. Ai got up on stage at the end of the speeches, didn't say anything, but his audience went crazy! Here are a few little snaps from the opening.
