The Arch as We Know It Returned | Ai Weiwei’s “Good Fences” De-Installation (Photos)


A photographic snap shot of the “de-installation” of Ai Weiwei’s Public Art Fund-sponsored installation “Good Fences Make Good Neighbors” from under the Washington Square Arch where it stood for four months. The work took place long days, sunrise to past sunset, with security watching the space overnight, over Monday, February 12th and Tuesday, February 13th. By last night, Tuesday evening, the controversial exhibit was gone.





Monday night, less “Good Fences” but still there tho’ shortened, however …

By Tuesday early evening the installation had departed Washington Square Park.
