We did it! We made it to the Andy Warhol / Ai Weiwei exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria, and it was great. It is the last weekend that it is showing so it was crazy full, but we still got the chance to get up close and personal with a lot of the works.
My favourite section was the collection of Weiwei’s street photography (there was one in particular that Mrs B and I both found to be very powerful), with a wall full of polaroid portraits of celebrities being a close runner up. I couldn’t get pictures of either of those sections due to the number of people, but I have them filed away in my memories where they are safe with the images I have from the Salvador Dali exhibition we went to a couple of years ago.
Here are the pics that I could take!
This would look great in our lounge:
This was made from Lego!
This pretty much sums up the exhibition – six people deep along every wall:
Don’t tell anyone, but Mrs B pushed over three kids and an old lady to get into here:
Pretty sure that is not part of the exhibition ma’am:
It’s art, you wouldn’t understand it:
And then afterwards we had a nice lunch in Centreplace to fill our bellies after wrestling with 600,000 people and a ridiculous amount of prams:
