    The city of New York serves as the canvas for Chinese artist Ai Weiwei's latest work, called "Good Fences Make Good Neighbours".

    Public Art Fund said the artist's latest creation was "inspired by the international migration crisis and tense sociopolitical battles surrounding the issue in the United States and worldwide".
