The Farnsworth Art Museum and The Strand Theatre will present the First Friday Film, “Ai WeiWei — Never Sorry.” The film will be shown at 8 p.m. Friday, September 7, at The Strand Theatre in Rockland.
Ai Weiwei is China’s most famous international artist, and its most outspoken domestic critic. Against a backdrop of strict censorship and an unresponsive legal system, Ai expresses himself and organizes people through art and social media. In response, Chinese authorities have shut down his blog, beat him up, bulldozed his newly built studio, and held him in secret detention. Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry is the inside story of a dissident for the digital age who inspires global audiences and blurs the boundaries of art and politics.
Tickets are $7/members, $8.50/nonmembers and may be purchased prior to showing at the Strand box office. For more information, call 596-6457 or visit farnsworthmuseum.org.
