A Chinese dissident artist in London

After four years of house arrest and an international travel ban, the People’s Republic of Chinese unexpectedly returned the passport of Ai Weiwei, giving the internationally renowned artist the opportunity to visit a show featuring his sculptures at London’s Royal Academy of Arts this week. He’s shown here with his “Forever” sculpture built from hundreds of bicycles installed in front of the iconic Gherkin building in London.
