Ai Weiwei on Twittering


Chinese dissident artist Ai Weiwei spoke in New York the other day at a forum about social media and activism.  The artist rarely makes an appearance in the US.  Read David Ng’s post at Culture Monster for more.  Ai said he spends 8 hours a day on Twitter, both tweeting and reading other people’s tweets.  He considers Twitter his primary news resource.

Libby told you about Ai’s work, which is featured now in a solo show at Arcadia University.
