With a firm nod to Beijing’s notorious biking culture, illustrious Chinese contemporary artist Ai Weiwei has created a new installation titled “Forever Bicycles” in conjunction with Scotiabank Nuit Blanche. Situated in the center of Nathan Phillips Square, Toronto, the awe-inspiring piece overhauls the majority of the outdoor arena, with 3,000 bicycles measuring out to a colossal 100 feet long and 30 feet wide — creating a three-dimensional structure nothing short of a spectacle. With this installation, the artist brings to awareness humanity’s approach to the ever-shifting social environment. The installation will be exhibited from now till October 27, so be sure to see it for yourself if you’re in town.
