"Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry" at the IMA

The IMA is screening the highly praised documentary AI WEIWEI: NEVER SORRY in connection with the special exhibition "Ai Wewei: According to What?"

From the event page: "Between 2008 and 2011, director Alison Klayman was given unprecedented access to artist Ai Weiwei—beginning with his work on the “Bird’s Nest” Olympic stadium and continuing through the aftermath of his government detention. The resulting film is a touching, inspirational, and sometimes humorous portrait of a man whose roles as artist and activist cannot be separated."

The movie starts at 6:30 in the Toby and Meetup time is 6:15 in the Toby lobby. Tickets are $9/$5 for IMA members; receive a $1 off if you have an exhibition ticket stub. Parking in the main surface lot and garage is $5/free for IMA members; there's free parking in the small lots by the Michigan Rd entrance.

After the movie, all are invited to join us for discussion over a late dinner or a pot of tea at Szechwan Garden restaurant. The address is 3649 Lafayette Rd (on the east side of the street about a block south of 38th St). It's a few minutes drive from the museum.

    This was the first meetup for my husband and me and we enjoyed it. We are still talking about the film because it helped put so many aspects of ai weiwei's life and art into perspective/context. We went back to see the exhibit on Sat. and seeing and discussing the film greatly enhanced that experience. Would have liked to stay for the spoken word but our stomach's were the ones you heard growling. Thanks everyone especially to Helen and Gary for being event hosts--it was a fun evening.--jill

    Great, thought provoking film. I stayed for the spoken word piece after so look forward yo meeting everyone another tome. The spoken word work was about ai weiwei...it added another dimension which would have been interesting for further discussion but I know people's stomachs were growling.
    Catch u all soon!

    The movie was informative and invoked emotion, but wouldn't have been nearly so powerful without the discussion afterwards. Thank you everybody for viewpoints that made this an experience I'm still thinking about this morning.

    The movie is very well made and informative. It benefits greatly from the fact that filming and photographing his own activities is central to Ai's art and his political activism, which are themselves closely intertwined.

    That sounds like a good one, too bad I'll miss it. Do you know if there will be other showings on later dates?
