A Few Things To Do This Week

NEW YORK

After being arrested for speaking up against the Chinese government, controversial artist Ai Weiwei isn't allowed to leave China, but that doesn't mean his voice has been silenced. The Brooklyn Museum of Art presents Ai Weiwei: Accordiing to What?, the artist's first large-scale exhibition in New York, and the last and largest stop on his global tour. The photo series Dropping a Han Dynasty Urn (1995 - 2009) and accompanying paint-dipped vases will be featured at the museum.

MIAMI

Wynwood Life started as a blog about trends and upcoming events in Miami's Wynwood Design District, and quickly became a place for locals to stay in the know. Now, after a slight epiphany, they're happy to announce Wynwood Life Festival: a physical celebration of the art infused neighborhood. Join local graffiti crews, designers, fashion bloggers, and a myriad of musical acts, both foreign and domestic, for a street fair extravaganza.
