In the latest from crazy land Florida, 51-year old Maximo Caminero hit up the Perez Art Museum and picked up one of Ai Wei Wei’s colored vases from his “According to What” exhibition. But when security guards began approaching Caminero, he smashed the vase. Apparently, the man is a painter and he acted in protest of the museum neglecting local artists for international ones. So his actions sorta make sense in that he was probably trying to make room for one of his joints.
I’m interested to see how Ai Wei Wei reacts. There are flicks of him smashing vases himself.
