According to the Sydney Morning Herald the exhibition is designed to examine the influence that Warhol’s work had on Ai by bringing together around 300 works from the artists. It will also include major commissions by Ai as well as many of his key works from the last 40 years of his practice.
The exhibition has been curated in collaboration with The Andy Warhol Museum, so we will get to see some of Warhol’s most famous works including, ‘Campbell’s Soup’, ‘Electric Chair’, ‘Mao’, ‘Elvis’ and ‘Flowers’.
