Ai Weiwei

Why does Ai Weiwei need to come here for six months?

I can understand him coming to London for two or three weeks to open his exhibition, see a couple of shows and maybe do a little shopping.

But six months?

What is he going to do during those six months?

And why all the awed reverence for this person?  

His "art" is very much a matter of taste.  

Millions of porcelain sunflower seeds purchased with public money!

Does that not illustrate the elitism, lack of sane judgement and wasteful extravagance of the public sector?
