Andy Warhol | Ai Weiwei – Exhibition Review

14-Jan-2016


Written by Andrea Boundy, Head of Design and Digital at Blick Creative

Coming into this exhibition I was familiar with Andy Warhol – being one of the poster boys of the Pop Art Movement – however had only come across Ai Weiwei due to recent news coverage when Lego refused to fill an order for him. Lego was concerned that Weiwei would use their product for political purposes.

The art piece the Lego pieces were intended for was especially created for the exhibition Andy Warhol | Ai Weiwei which is currently on display at the NGV. The piece is a room-sized cube which can be walked into, where portraits of 12 Australian human rights campaigners are replicated using the colourful building blocks. Each picture is accompanied by a statement from the relevant activist, from Rosie Batty to Peter Greste.

For me it was particularly Weiwei’s work which resonated, as he is often making a comment through his art on current society or politics. The NGV has done a brilliant job at curating this exhibition allowing the visitor to easily draw parallels and see connections between these two significant artists.

The Andy Warhol | Weiwei exhibition runs until April 2016 at the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV).
