Statement: Free Expression Week ‘Badiucao’ art exhibition

We are sorry to announce that the exhibition “Gongle,” by Chinese artist Badiucao, has been cancelled out of safety concerns.

The decision follows threats made by the Chinese authorities relating to the artist. Whilst the organisers value freedom of expression, the safety of our partners remains a major concern.

We regret having to make this decision, and hope there will be a chance for public to see Badiucao’s work in future.

Other Free Expression Week events will continue as normal.
