Anyone seen Ai Weiwei's "According to What" exhibition?

Heard about it when someone vandalized one of the pieces in Florida... Now it's traveled up to Brooklyn... Would be a hike for me to get to it, is it worth the trouble?

I saw it at Toronto's Art Gallery of Ontario last year. Thought it was worth seeing, though I think a lot of its power comes from remembering news events rather than the pieces themselves.

cool, thanks! I don't think I understand most of his pieces, but the dropping of the Han Dynasty urn, I think I get that one and would really like to see it.

WH and I paid $50 to see The Scream at MoMA a few years ago... really vacillated after learning what the price was... But seeing it in person was quite an experience and very much worth the price!

I am totally going to this (not a hike for me though ) and have heard good things.

Also, t/j, please go see Kara Walker's A Subtlety at the Domino Sugar Factory if you get out here before July 6th! (And make a point to get out here before July 6th )

It's just incredible. Really really stunning.
