AI WEIWEI AT WHITE BOX
by Emily Nathan
White Box, the New York alternative space launched in 1998 by the festive art daredevil Juan Puntes, has always sought to have an international presence. It’s fitting, then, that Puntes teamed up with Asia-facing New York art dealer Ethan Cohan and the globetrotting DJ Spooky to make a Skype conversation with dissident Chinese artist Ai Weiwei the centerpiece of the gallery’s 13th annual spring benefit and silent auction, which took place at the White Box storefront on Broome Street on Apr. 25, 2012.
