Ai Weiwei, 53, one of China's most prominent avant-garde artists and human rights activists, poses for a portrait in his Beijing studio on April 25, 2009. Although a show of his art has been “indefinitely postponed” in the People’s Republic of China, a public art piece by Ai, “Circle of Animals/ Zodiac Heads,” is on view at 59th Street and Fifth Avenue in New York from May 2 to July 15.
