Andy Warhol - Ai Weiwei exhibition at the NGV

Ai Weiwei, Dropping the Han Dynasty Urn, 1995. The original work was in photos, this is the lego version

This is one of the best exhibition I have seen recently, I love Andy Warhol's work, and WeiWei too, so much of his work is about pots and everyday object, but also flowers, places, people, politics… and a full spectrum of media. Definitely worth a visit if you are in Melbourne, the exhibition is on until 24 April 2016.
