Dissident Chinese artist remains under pressure

Updated 13 February 2013, 15:43 AEDT

The first major American exhibition of the works of dissident Chinese artist Ai Weiwei is being held in Washington.

It's received rave reviews and next month will begin four city tours of north America, ending up in New York.

But so far the artist himself has not been able to go to the United States.

Ai Weiwei remains under pressure, as the travel restrictions imposed by the Chinese authorities continue to plague his freedom of expression.

Correspondent: Danny Vincent, journalist based in Beijing

Speaker: Ai Weiwei, Chinese artist
