Each month a different artist will take over the residency on the Piccadilly Lights. The daily space on the screen has been donated to CIRCA for the remainder of the year.The first episode New York Days explores Ai Weiwei’s formative experiences living in the great American metropolis; his work, the civil rights movement, the Downtown scene and his friendship with cultural icons Andy Warhol and Alan Ginsberg.
