Alcatraz and Ai Wei Wei

The ferrys to Alcatraz leave every day from San Francisco’s Pier 33 for $30. It’s a great way to enjoy marvellous views of Frisco and to see a historic building. Book online to avoid queues and make sure you go there ASAP: the prison is now showing Ai Wei Wei’s “At Large” exhibition on freedom.

Seeing Ai Wei Wei’s exhibition in a context such as the Alcatraz prison was unique. The Chinese artist focused on the “heroes of our century”, or those who are being punished for their ideas. The Chinese government didn’t allow him to leave China to attend the opening of his exhibition.

Vedere la mostra di Ai Wei Wei in un posto come Alcatraz é un’esperienza unica. L’artista cinese si é soffermato sugli “eroi dei nostri tempi”, ossia i prigionieri d’opinione. Il governo cinese non gli ha permesso di lasciare la Cina per andare all’inaugurazione della sua mostra.
