Last October, I had the amazing opportunity to travel to Beijing—on the heels of a courier trip to share our great Impressionist collection with the Tokyo Fuji Art Museum.
My trip to Beijing had one primary purpose—to meet Ai Weiwei and discuss plans for our upcoming exhibition. The Brooklyn Museum will be the final stop on the North American tour of Ai Weiwei: According to What?, originally organized by the Mori Art Museum in Tokyo. Weiwei lived in New York from 1983-93, and his first apartment was in Williamsburg. He has fond memories of visiting the Brooklyn Museum then, and as you can see here—already a Nets fan!
Mark your calendars – April 18-August 10, 2014
