Comments Off on Miami Artist Smashes $1 Million Vase by Chinese Dissident Ai Weiwei “In Protest”

A Miami artist shocked the art world this week when he deliberately destroyed a $1 million Ai Weiwei vase on exhibit at the Pérez Art Museum . Artist Maximo Caminero, 51, was charged with criminal mischief for destroying the Chinese dissident’s artwork in protest of what he perceived as a lack of local artist representation at the museum. In an official statement, the museum denounced the incident as an act of vandalism and rebutted Caminero’s argument by highlighting the various local artists it had on display.
