Ai weiwei - odyssey poster (x2 one for future sale)

Full Lot Details

Ai Weiwei (b.1957)

Odyssey

Offset lithograph, 2017, from the edition of 1000, the full sheet printed to the edges, 915 x 610mm (36 x 24in) (unframed)

Ai Weiwei here brings together the frieze technique of classical antiquity with scenes from the contemporary global refugee condition. The result is a powerful and anachronistic image that calls attention to our shared humanity and, in doing so, demands we reflect on the state of today's refugee crisis.

The artist unveiled the edition on the occasion of his ambitious citywide Public Art Fund exhibition, 'Good Fences Make Good Neighbours' (October 2017 - February 2018).

This work is accompanied by the original document issued by Public Art Fund.
