Here It Is, The Rubber Duck At The Summer Palace

“Mass-produced curio,” we called it. “Kitsch.” “Pop art.” “Naked commercialism.”

And it’s here, all here — in Beijing.

Florentijn Hofman’s rubber duck was unveiled at the Summer Palace on Friday. There was an “autistic art show” that day, featuring paintings by 15 autistic children. More duck-centric events will follow as part of Beijing Design Week.

On behalf of BJDW organizers, I’ll go ahead and say you should check out their other exhibits in Caochangdi and Dashilar as well. It’s not all about the duck.
