Ai Weiwei unveils “Golden Age” designer wallpaper at Serpentine Galleries in London

London’s Serpentine Galleries unveils “Golden Age,” a designer wallpaper by contemporary artist Ai Weiwei. The piece is a social commentary of sorts by the artist and features interlocking gold chains reminiscent of luxurious silk scarves, as well as surveillance cameras surrounding Twitter’s Larry Bird logo. This is possibly an allusion to the ongoing discussion of privacy topics like social media rights and government surveillance issues, as Ai Weiwei is reputed for his critiques on the Chinese government and his longstanding dissidence of the state’s policies.

“Golden Age” and the preview video above will debut ahead of the gallery’s upcoming wallpaper exhibition by artists, designers, architects and the like. The wallpaper collection will be available for purchase this May.
