The Port: PAMM deinstalls Ai Weiwei's Circle of Animals/Zodiac Heads

Pérez Art Museum Miami said goodbye to Ai Weiwei's Circle of Animals/Zodiac Heads (2010), which were showcased on the west side of PAMM's terrace since the museum opened in December.

This large-scale rigging operation to de-install the 12-bronze Zodiac Heads was a coordinated effort by PAMM Senior Registrar Naomi Patterson, Artex Fine Art Shippers and Epperson Cranes, Inc. The sculptures will travel to Museo Nacional de Antropologia in Mexico City and will be on view May 22 through November 22, 2014.
