Ai Weiwei MASK is a project devised to raise funds for COVID-19 humanitarian causes.
Ai Weiwei MASK artworks can be purchased as single works; as series of four; or as a complete set of twenty which includes the artist’s iconic Study of Perspective series. Made in the artist’s studio in Berlin, each work is silk-screened by hand on cloth face masks. In addition, each package includes a signed artist’s statement. The artworks are not recommended for medical use and no liability is assumed if they are used for this purpose. The masks are not washable.
All proceeds benefit the COVID-19 humanitarian and human rights emergency efforts led by Human Rights Watch, Refugees International and Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF). The masks are available until June 27 on www.ebay.com/aiweiweimask.
Ai Weiwei MASK is produced by Ai Weiwei studio and curated as an independent project by Alexandra Munroe, Senior Curator, Asian Art and Senior Advisor, Global Arts, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum.
