  • The celebrated and often controversial Chinese activist and artist Ai Weiwei has teamed up with Hong Kong-based toy designer Eric So to create a series of giant rubber sculptures for the Singapore Museum of Art and Design's booth at Art Stage Singapore. Entitled "Aibodao" (which means "Unloveable" in Chinese), the series refers to the artist's nude studio portrait which features four women and the artist naked, causing it to be deemed "pornography" by the Beijing government.
