Weiwei’s masks were sold on eBay with proceeds going to Human Rights Watch, Refugees International and Medicins Sans Frontieres/Doctors Without Borders. The listings on Amazon started at $50. The project was coordinated by Alexandra Munroe, senior curator and Asian art and Senior Adviser of Global Arts at the Guggenheim Museum in New York City, New York.
