We’re Dancing Gangnam Style!
Over the past few weeks, a video of acclaimed Chinese artist Ai WeiWei performing a parody of PSY’s K-Pop hit ‘Gangnam Style’ has gone viral. Although you can watch it at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n281GWfT1E8, the video was reportedly blocked from Chinese websites.In response, London-based artist Anish Kapoor created his own video in solidarity with Ai Wei Wei. He also asked the international cultural community to create their own photos and videos to show the importance of freedom of speech and expression: www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-20382198
In that spirit, staff of the Philadelphia Museum of Art will gather on the East Terrace tomorrow morning at 9 a.m. to film our own version of ‘Gangnam Style.’ We’d love for you to come watch, cheer us on, and maybe even dance along. If you don’t already know the moves, this tutorial will help: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QZmkU5Pg1sw!
