Chinese Artist Ai Weiwei Under House Arrest                                    
avant-garde artist Ai Weiwei said Saturday that he has been placed
under house arrest to prevent him from attending a party commemorating
the forced demolition of his newly built studio in Shanghai. Ai, who
has become known as much for his social activism as his art in recent
years, was planning to fly to the Chinese financial hub for Sunday's
celebration, but people he suspects were police told him Friday that he
would not be permitted to leave his Beijing home. (Art Daily, November 8, 2010)  ( SI-LA-GI)
