More Information

Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry is the first feature-length film about the internationally renowned Chinese artist and activist, Ai Weiwei.

From 2008 to 2010, Beijing-based journalist and filmmaker Alison Klayman gained unprecedented access to the artist. This film examines this complex intersection of artistic practice and social activism as seen through the life and art of China's preeminent contemporary artist.

Klayman documented the artist’s artistic process in preparation for major museum exhibitions, his intimate exchanges with family members and his increasingly public clashes with the Chinese government. Klayman's detailed portrait of the artist provides a nuanced exploration of contemporary China and one of its most compelling public figures.

Screening introduced by Clare Lilley, YSP Director of Programme.

Please note: the Chapel will be open late until 19.20. Access is via the cross-country walking route. Please allow plenty of time before the event if you plan to see the exhibition before the film screening (approx 10 minutes)
