Yesterday I spent most of the day at the NGV. The exhibition of works by Ai Weiwei and Andy Warhol far exceeded my expectations. We had a well informed and interesting guide, and then we went back for a longer look. It was the first time I had seen so much work by Ai Weiwei.
Both artists were astute critics of their societies. Great food for thought with regard to the role of artist as commentator and observer.
and finally ... lots of merchandising
