Ai Weiwei’s “Good Fences Make Good Neighbors” exhibit in New York

“Good Fences Make Good Neighbors” is an open to the public exhibit by Chinese Artist and activist Ai Wei Wei that spans across five boroughs in New York City. Works have now been erected at Doris C. Freedman Plaza at Central Park, the Washington Square Arch in Greenwich Village, and the Unisphere at Flushing Meadows Corona Park in Queens.

In collaboration with the Public Art Fund, the public art looks to respond to the global migration crisis and a reflection on the profound social and political impulse to divide people from each other. For Ai, these themes have deep roots. He experienced exile with his family as a child, life as an immigrant and art student in New York, and more recently, brutal repression as an artist and activist in China.
