September 21, 2011

Hour 1: The recent high-profile detainment and release of artist Ai Weiwei [1] brought the Chinese art scene into the world’s eye. What is the current status of Weiwei and other artists in China? We’ll spend this hour with Nasher Sculpture Center [2] Director Jeremy Strick and Melissa Chiu, Director of the Asia Society Museum [3] in New York. They’ll deliver the talk “China: Artists Behind the Wall” [4] this evening at the Nasher.
