Chinese artist Ai Weiwei poses for a photo inside his compound in Beijing. Weiwei, who has been outspoken in his criticism of the Chinese government, was arrested in 2011 and held for nearly three months on charges of tax evasion. Chinese authorities still have his passport, preventing him from traveling to Washington for the opening of his new show at the Hirshhorn. ED JONES/AFP/Getty Images Buy Photo
