New espresso cup collection inspired by Chinese artist Ai Weiwei

TRIESTE, Italy—The newest artist to collaborate on illycaffè’s illy Art Collection is Ai Weiwei, the Chinese contemporary artist and activist. This illy Art Collection has been inspired by Ai Weiwei’s Colored Vases, which he created in 2006 by taking ancient Neolithic vases and dunking them into industrial paint tins to reshape their look and function. Using a process of appropriation and destruction, Ai Weiwei takes ordinary objects away from their daily context and transforms them into works of art.

Leon Black Stepping Down as MoMA’s Chairman is ‘the Right Decision,’ Says Ai Weiwei

Over the last couple of months, Leon D. Black, the former chief executive of the global equity firm Apollo Global Management and the chairman of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, has been called out by prominent members of the art world for his connections to Jeffrey Epstein. In February, over 150 artists, including Hito Steyrel and Nan Goldin, called on MoMA to separate itself from Black, and as recently as a few weeks ago, the New York Post was reporting that Blacks was in talks with the museum about his future there. According to a new report from the New York Times, on Friday, Black announced to his colleagues that once his tenure as chairman expires, he won’t stand for re-election. However, he is expected to remain on the board after stepping down as chairman.
