Much maligned by the Chinese government, controversial artist Ai WeiWei presents “Stacked,” an installation of 760 bicycles displayed at GALLERIA CONTINUA. A continuation of 2008’s “Very Yao,” “Stacked” draws upon the favored mode of transportation for millions of Chinese and is an exploration of mass manufacturing in his native country.
