Finally, Details about Ai Weiwei's "@Large" Exhibition on Alcatraz Island Have Been Released
Finally, details about Ai Weiwei's exhibition on Alcatraz Island have been released. Arguably the most anticipated show of the year, "@Large: Ai Weiwei on Alcatraz" will see seven original, site-specific installations strewn throughout four spots on the island, For-Site Foundation revealed. The whole idea behind staging the show at the former prison turned national park is to prompt viewers to question the world's current state of human rights.

Ai's sculpture, sound, and mixed-media works will be lodged in the two-story "New Industries Building where 'privileged' inmates were permitted to work; the main and psychiatric wards of the Hospital; the A Block cells, the only remaining section of the military prison that was constructed in the early 20th century; and the Dining Hall," the "@Large" press release reads. Even California natives who have previously frequented the park will be in for a surprise since only the prison's former Dining Hall has been open to the public in the past. Every other spot is usually off limits.

On view from Sept. 27, 2014 through April 26, 2015, "@Large" will compel viewers to think about the social implications of incarceration—something Ai has explored personally. Tickets go on sale June 27. The package will include admission to the show and an audio tour of Alcatraz, but you'll want to act fast. Tickets will likely sell out quickly.

:drool: :drool: :drool:

This June, Taschen Books will release the first comprehensive monograph of Chinese artist Ai Weiwei's career. The limited edition, 724-page hardcover book was made in collaboration with the artist and features extensive text and images (many of which have been previously unseen) from Weiwei's life and work, as well as essays by Uli Sigg, Roger M. Buergel, Carlos Rojas, William A. Callahan, and James J. Lally.

The "Art Edition" of the monograph included a marble sculpture in an edition of 100, each of which has sold for $11,000. Both the "Art Edition" and the edition to be released next month come wrapped in a digitally printed silk scarf based on the Ai Weiwei's Straight installation. Each of the 1,000 "regular" edition copies is signed by the artist and will cost $1,500. For more info, visit the Taschen site.

I was there at the PAMM when it happened. The guy is a complete dipshit.
Make a statement, come in and take a dump in the lobby to protest your the institution if you want, but dont destroy someone the art of someone else.
