Ai Weiwei

Among the many exhibitions opening this week and next week, I would recommend a visit to the Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery for Ai Weiwei New York 1983 - 1993.

Equal parts street photography and sly ethnography, this sequence of 227 black-and-white pictures (captured and selected by the artist himself) contains within it kernels of the world we are living in today.

Yesterday Canadian Art published my preview. Hopefully they will make space for someone to write a more comprehensive piece, one that speaks to the elements contained with this nicely-braided installation.
