Ai Weiwei Heads Unveiled In NY

Roberta Smith notes: ‘The Chinese artist Ai Weiwei began his second month of detention this week, and still the Chinese government has given an increasingly outraged and anxious world no satisfactory answers to questions about his whereabouts, his condition or the charges against him. Despite Mr. Ai’s absence, his plans for exhibiting his art in the West have been proceeding on schedule…In Manhattan “Circle of Animals/Zodiac Heads,” which is being termed Mr. Ai’s first public sculpture, was proclaimed open on Wednesday morning…at the Pulitzer Fountain in front of the Plaza Hotel.’
