Mary Boone Gallery NY presents Ai Weiwei
Ai Weiwei’s sunflower seeds installation will be held at Mary Boone Gallery in New York now until February 4th. The show will feature 5 tons of the hand-painted porcelain sunflower seeds, previously shown at Tate Modern in London 2010. The artist remains travel-banned and Beijing-bound. His Zodiac Heads are shown at Paul Kasmin Gallery (see above).
Recently it was reported that the Chinese authorities have agreed to review Ai’s tax case. It is known that he has already paid a fine with help by Chinese people donations. With the highly international interest, we hope a satisfied solution will be considered by the tax authorities to close this matter and let the artist focus on his artistic life.
