“L.A. strongly represents America, both geographically and culturally,”

“These are my first exhibitions in the city and I’m very excited about it.”

said Ai Weiwei

The Marciano will feature at least three large-scale works, including a new installation responding to the refugee crisis with boats, humans and zodiac figures crafted out of traditional kite-making materials: bamboo, sisal and silk. Mr. Deitch’s new gallery will feature “a good introduction to the artist’s work,” including an accumulation of 6,000 wooden stools, flea-market finds that represent hundreds of years in Chinese history. A new series of 12 portraits of the Chinese zodiac built out of Lego will also be shown.

UTA Artist Space, a gallery overseen by Joshua Roth, the head of United Talent Agency’s fine-art division, is showing a selection of Ai Weiwei’s work in marble, the highlight being a large field of grass.

Limited Edition Bags and Scarves by Ai Weiwei

Papercutting is a traditional Chinese art going back 2,000 years. The coloured, intricately cut papers are used as a story-telling medium in festivities, for prayers, and as everyday decoration. The bags and scarves take their motifs from a papercut created by Ai Weiwei as part of his Papercut Portfolio published by TASCHEN in 2019.
