The sensational giant Rubber Duck art installation draws artists, critics, curators and developers to discuss what makes that inflatable fowl so popular and what makes good public art. Wang Jie reports.
The public art phenomenon of the past year is the acclaimed giant yellow Rubber Duck that travels around the world, bringing joy wherever it splashes down.
Sydney Harbor, Victoria Harbor, the lake at Beijing’s Summer Palace and Taiwan’s Keelung Harbor, where it burst on New Year’s Day, are just a few of the 18-meter-tall duck’s stops last year.
