Tate Modern has posted this message of support for the Chinese artist Ai Weiwei, who was detained on Sunday at Beijing Airport, on its façade. The arts organisation is also encouraging people to sign this petition calling for the artist’s release.
The gallery is currently showing Ai Weiwei’s sunflower seeds installation in its Turbine Hall space. To help spread word of petition, it is suggesting that people show solidarity by using this photo as their avatar on Twitter. Tate’s Twitter feed is here.
