IN/SITU Outside 2014

EXPO CHICAGO has partnered with the Chicago Park District and DCASE to present the inaugural IN/SITU Outside. In a major addition to Chicago’s artistic landscape, internationally acclaimed Chinese contemporary artist Ai Weiwei’s Circle of Animals/Zodiac Heads: Bronze will be on display outside of the Adler Planetarium (1300 S. Lake Shore Dr.). The twelve bronze animal heads representing the traditional Chinese zodiac that once adorned the famed fountain-clock of the Yuanming Yuan (Old Summer Palace) are the centerpiece of a global, multi-year touring exhibition presented in the United States, Europe, and Asia. Artist  Michael Rakowitz (Rhona Hoffman Gallery) will also have his work, “Every Weapon is a Tool if You Hold It Right” displayed on the dock of Navy Pier.
