The Andy Warhol Museum announces its celebrated exhibition Andy Warhol | Ai Weiwei has been extended through Sunday, September 11, 2016. The exhibition opened at The Warhol during a free community day June 3, 2016, following Ai Weiwei's visit to Pittsburgh for his sold out talk at Carnegie Music Hall in Oakland the previous evening. The Warhol has seen record-breaking attendance for the months of June and July, and August is on its way to break the month’s attendance record as well.
This major international exhibition featuring two significant artists of the 20th and 21st centuries—Andy Warhol and Ai Weiwei—opened at the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) in Melbourne, Australia, on December 11, 2015, to record-breaking attendance.
The exhibition, developed by The Warhol and the NGV, with the participation of Ai Weiwei, explores the significant influence of these two artists on modern and contemporary life, focusing on the parallels, intersections, and points of difference between their practices. The exhibition creates a dialogue between the two artists throughout the seven floors of the museum.
