Chinese artist Lin Bo made headlines with his audacious virtual protest on the anniversary of the Tiananmen Square massacre, and the wave of publicity surrounding him hasn't crested yet. The artist will appear in St. Louis to address his work, conditions for dissident artists in China and activism as the guest of the Repertory Theatre of St. Louis this month. His address includes examples of the work that riled China's ruling powers, which will be on display for the duration of his stay. Lin Bo is also a character in Christopher Chen's play Caught, which asks pointed questions about art collectors' love of a sob story, the politics of supporting dissidents as an investment, and the slippery nature of looking for objective truth in the subjective media of art and theater. Caught is performed Tuesday through Sunday (March 7 to 25) at the Loretto-Hilton Center (130 Edgar Road; www.repstl.org). Tickets are $45 to $69.50.
