TimesTalks: Ai Weiwei


Join The New York Times for an exciting evening with Ai Weiwei, one of the leading cultural figures of our time, recognized for the influence and profound social impact of his work across a variety of media. On October 12th, Public Art Fund will present a timely new exhibition across all five boroughs by the multi–disciplinary artist called “Good Fences Make Good Neighbors.” Inspired by the international migration crisis and tense sociopolitical battles surrounding the issue in the United States and worldwide, Weiwei has conceived of this ambitious, multi–site project as a way of transforming the metal wire security fence into a powerful artistic symbol. The conversation will be moderated by Vivian Yee, a national immigration correspondent at The New York Times.

In collaboration with the Vera List Center for Art and Politics at The New School and Public Art Fund.
