Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry
Named by ArtReview as the most powerful artist in the world, Ai Weiwei is China’s most celebrated contemporary artist, and its most outspoken domestic critic. First-time director Alison Klayman gained unprecedented access to the charismatic artist, as well as his family and others close to him, while working as a journalist in Beijing. Her compelling documentary is the inside story of a passionate dissident for the digital age who inspires global audiences and blurs the boundaries of art and politics.
Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry is presented by the University of South Florida Contemporary Art Museum (USFCAM) in conjunction with the exhibition SubRosa: the Language of Resistance, on view through Dec. 7, 2013. USFCAM organizes and presents significant and investigative exhibitions of contemporary art from Florida, the United States and around the world, including Africa, Asia, Europe, and Latin America. Changing exhibitions are designed to introduce students, faculty and the Tampa Bay community to current cultural trends. USFCAM also publishes relevant catalogues, schedules critically important traveling exhibitions and underwrites new projects by artists emerging on the national and the international fronts. USFCAM maintains the university’s art collection, comprised of more than 5,000 art works. There are exceptional holdings in graphics and sculpture multiples by internationally acclaimed artists.
