Chi­nese artist Ai to build fences in NY

New Straits Times - - World -

NEW YORK: Chi­nese ac­tivist artist Ai Wei­wei will build dozens of fences here for an exhibition open­ing in Oc­to­ber that fo­cuses on walls that di­vide peo­ple and mark bor­ders. A cham­pion of refugees and mi­grants, Ai is call­ing his new large-scale con­cep­tual in­stal­la­tion “Good Fences Make Good Neigh­bours”. He took the ti­tle from the fi­nal line in “Mend­ing Wall”, a poem by the 20th-cen­tury Amer­i­can poet Robert Frost. Ai said he was dis­mayed by Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s poli­cies.
