Last month I visited the Ai Wei-Wei exhibit at the AGO. I was fascinated by the art pieces inspired by Ai Wei-Wei and built by his team of artists. His passion for living, making ethical choices, and doing the right thing even if it puts his own life and well-being in danger is seen through each of his displays.
