Globe and Mail: Yue Minjun gives Vancouver the last laugh
Monday July 23rd, 2012
Even if laughter yoga isn’t your thing, this may be enough to prompt a sun salutation, or at least a hearty Namaste in Vancouver. Yue Minjun’s wildly popular installation A-maze-ing Laughter will remain here, thanks to a donation by the founder of yoga wear giant Lululemon. Chip Wilson and his wife Shannon have given $1.5-million to the Vancouver Biennale Open Air Museum, allowing the organization to gift the work to the city – where residents and tourists have fallen hard for the 14 painted bronze figures.
