"According To What?"

This is the title of the Ai Weiwei show that has been on at the Art Gallery Of Ontario (AGO) since August and which I finally got to see it this week. They actually allowed photography so I will show some pics over the next few days. The show "spotlights the complexities of a changing world" including such issues as human rights and freedom of expression.

I sure hope he pronounces his name "way-way" and not "wee-wee". I now, juvenile of me. I can't help it! :)

he makes a statement all on his own. :)

Enticing sign...what? I shall look forward to how Mr. Weiwei deals with or explains these "complexities" of our changing world. Maybe he'll have some answers. :)

Nice Sign and teaser..I'll be sure to come back...such a great perk of living in a Real City! I appreciate your sharing, because I don't! Neat they allowed pictures!

I have of course heard about it- if I'm passing through Toronto, I'll have to check it out.

This should be fun to see. I have seen some interesting work by Wei Wei and some not so interesting work.

A great example of the art of signage. Imposing body language forms part of the sign.

I would love to see that exhibit.

Great sign, and I like the "Grapes" photo. I, too, was intrigued with the shadows of the stools.

Love it when they allow you to take photos at exhibitions, gives more people a chance to experience the art.
