China Returns Passport to Ai Weiwei, He Plans London Trip

China's most famous artist has his passport back. Ai Weiwei (eye way way) has gotten back his passport four years after it was confiscated by Chinese authorities. He now plans to attend a London exhibition this fall. The artist and government critic posted an Instagram photo Wednesday of himself holding a Chinese passport with the caption, "Today, I got my passport." Ai's work has gotten much attention worldwide, making him one of best-known Chinese dissidents. Britain's Royal Academy of Arts said Ai would travel to London for a major exhibition of his work in September.
