Description
Chinese artist Ai Weiwei lived in New York City's East Village from 1983 to 1993, a highly formative period in the young artist's life. He was an active member of the local arts scene and took more than 10,000 black and white photographs during his stay, capturing riots in Tompkins Square Park, transvestites at the Wigstock Festival, homeless people in the Bowery, and portraits of Chinese and American artists and friends. When he returned to China, the photos (mostly negatives) were in his luggage. Finally, after leaving them untouched for years, Ai made a selection of 226 photographs—the subject of this remarkable monograph, which offers a startling portrait of American city life by a sensitive and intelligent observer.
