Ai Weiwei May Exhibit at Alcatraz

10.17.13 Kyle Petreycik

Well known Chinese artist and activist Ai Weiwei is currently in talks with officials to create an art exhibition at Alcatraz, the former high-security prison island just off the San Francisco Bay. This isn’t too surprising seeing as the artist has previously released a heavy metal music video and exhibited several dioramas depicting his living situation during an eighty-day imprisonment by Chinese authorities.

There is very little information about what the artist has planned for the location and. ANIMAL is awaiting comment from the U.S. National Parks Service who will be overseeing the exhibition in conjunction with For-Site Foundation, a San Francisco-based non-profit.
