Ai Wei Wei

The influencer talks cultural impact with Vivian Yee

Watch an exciting conversation with Ai Weiwei, a leading cultural figure of our time recognized for the influence and profound social impact of his work across a variety of media.

On October 12th, Public Art Fund presented a timely exhibition across all five boroughs by the multi-disciplinary artist called “Good Fences Make Good Neighbors.” Inspired by the international migration crisis and tense sociopolitical battles surrounding the issue in the United States and worldwide, Weiwei conceived of this ambitious, multi-site project as a way of transforming the metal wire security fence into a powerful artistic symbol. The conversation was moderated by Vivian Yee, a national immigration correspondent at The New York Times, and is presented in collaboration with The New School Vera List Center for Art and Politics.
