Opening just seven days after the famed Chinese artist's release from detention for alleged tax evasion in China, the Asia Society Museum exhibition Ai Weiwei: New York Photographs 1983-1993 received immediate and widespread coverage from international news media.
A steady, cold spring rain did not deter some 200 people from attending this morning’s official opening of Chinese artist Ai Weiwei’s Circle of Animals/Zodiac Heads outdoor installation in New York City.
The unveling of Ai Weiwei's Circle of Animals/Zodiac Heads outdoor sculpture at Central Park's Grand Army Plaza in NYC was postponed, due to a change in Mayor Bloomberg's schedule following the death of Osama bin Laden.
