It's Friday *happy jig* time to put on your sparkly shirts and go do some shtuff. I know what you're thinking, since I'm an art blogger I'm probably gonna go do something arty this weekend... psshh no! Well ok, you're right. I am.
Tonight I'm going to see the documentary Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry, woot!! Ok that might not seem very cool... but guys, Ai Weiwei is the most badass of all the badass contemporary artists out there. Here's a little blurb from the film's website that sums up his badassery pretty well:
"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."
Happy weekend, friends. Let's all tap into our inner badassery this weekend, k?
