Ai Weiwei in NYC

Chinese artist Ai Weiwei has just installed numerous security fences throughout NYC and they’re likely the most beautiful fences the city has ever seen. Good Fences Make Good Neighbors, October 12 to February 11, 2018, is Weiwei’s largest exhibit to date. It consists of huge site-specific sculptural works in over 300 different locations — rooftops, in between buildings, bus shelters — including the Doris C. Freedman Plaza at Central Park, the Washington Square Arch and the Unisphere at Flushing Meadows-Corona Park in Queens. Created in collaboration with Public Art Fund to mark the 40th anniversary of the non-profit organisation, the project aims to spotlight the role of fences as psychic and physical barriers that divide us, which is at the heart of human rights issues, and debates about immigration and refugees today. In addition to the sculptures, Weiwei has also created 200 two-dimensional works that will appear on lampposts and banners in all of NYC’s five boroughs.
