Sale Special Price $126.00 $140.00

Details

Produced in conjunction with Melbourne-based purveyor of museum shop delights Third Drawer Down, the square, silk scarf features an image taken from Ai's Study of Perspective series. The works feature the artist's hand flipping the bird to major international landmarks and artworks (Tiananmen Square, the Mona Lisa, and the White House, to name a few).

 

Ai Weiwei has received international acclaim for his artworks across a wide range of media. His pieces reside in many of the world's best museums and galleries. A very outspoken critic of the Chinese Government, he was secretly detained by police at Beijing Capital International Airport as he went to board a flight to Hong Kong in 2011. The artist was held for 81 days without any official justification being given before being released on bail for fabricated charges of tax evasion. His passport was never returned and he remains unable to leave China.
