Artist puts Ai Weiwei’s face on Chinese consulate

"Free Ai Weiwei" posters at Tate Modern

Weiwei has been missing for more than 50 days. If you haven’t heard about this (or you just want to keep up to date on the news), check out this site.

Last Friday night, Geandy projected an image of Ai Weiwei on the Chinese consulate building in NYC. Here’s a video:
