In a compelling and beautiful new print, Ai Weiwei calls attention to our shared humanity by adapting the style of classical Greek friezes and vase paintings to depict the many forms of the contemporary global refugee condition. This brand new print is being unveiled on the occasion of Ai’s ambitious citywide Public Art Fund exhibition Good Fences Make Good Neighbors, on view in New York City Oct 2017 – Feb 2018. The bold and striking imagery in Odyssey is based on a work of the same title featured in the exhibition.
Ai Weiwei: Good Fences Make Good Neighbors is a multi-site, multi-media exhibition commissioned for 300+ public spaces, monuments, buildings, transportation sites, and advertising platforms throughout New York City. Collectively, these elements comprise a passionate response to the global migration crisis and a reflection on the profound social and political impulse to divide people from each other. 100% of the proceeds from this sale benefit Public Art Fund’s presentation of the exhibition.
