Forever Bicycles by Ai Weiwei

October 28, 2011

Christopher Jobson

An incredible, brand new installation made from 1,000 bicycles by dissident Chinese artist Ai Weiwei who emerged four months ago from a prolonged detention by the Chinese government for alleged economic crimes. The installation is one of 21 artworks on display as part of “Ai Weiwei Absent,” that opens tomorrow at the Taipei Fine Arts Museum and runs through January 29th. Weiwei will not be present.
