Lisson Gallery opens a major exhibition of the work of Ai Weiwei on May 13, 2011. The selection of key works from the past 6 years was agreed with the artist at the beginning of this year. Ai Weiwei was detained by authorities in Beijing while trying to board a flight to Hong Kong on April 3rd and has not been seen or heard from since. Lisson Gallery, along with all his supporters in the UK and around the world, is alarmed by the detention of Ai Weiwei and greatly concerned for his safety. Updated news and information can be found at Freeaiweiwei.org. Please sign a petition started by the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation and signed by leading members of the international arts community here. The studio and supporters of Ai Weiwei are determined to proceed with his planned projects. These include the major public installation “Circle of Animals / Zodiac Heads” which opened in New York on May 2n and will open at Somerset House in London on May 12.
