"Never retreat, retweet": #AskAiWeiwei, Friday morning
You'll all know Ai Weiwei's engagement with social media, keeping in touch with a community of artists, artlovers and activists the globe over. Now, we're lucky enough to have a slot with the man himself – tomorrow – to answer questions from social media users tomorrow morning, UK time. From 11am BST on Friday 11 September he'll be responding to your questions – just tweet @royalacademy using #AskAiWeiwei, or comment on this Kickstarter post to take part. The earlier you ask, the easier it'll be for us to put the question to him; so, if there's something you'd like to know about the show, Tree, or any other element of his artistic, architectural or political practice, then put finger to keyboard right now...
And, as the man himself said: "Never retreat, retweet!"
Ps A whole bunch of rewards are being fulfilled over the coming 5-7 days – so do watch out!
