“Ai Weiwei: According to What?” doesn’t open at the Brooklyn Museum until next Friday,the 18th, but tonight, the PEN American Center, along with the Brooklyn Public Library and Friends of Ai Weiwei, have organized a protest of Beijing’s efforts to silence Weiwei and other Chinese writers and artists, which takes place tonight from 7–8:30 p.m. outside the Brooklyn Public Library. To show our support, we’ve combed social media to find images of solidarity from art stars, organizations, and everyday people.
