The Andy Warhol Museum will host an exhibition on the influence of Andy Warhol and Ai Weiwei, titled Andy Warhol | Ai Weiwei, from June 4 through August 28.
Andy Warhol | Ai Weiwei, developed by The Warhol and the National Gallery of Victoria, with the participation of Ai Weiwei, explores the significant influence of these two artists on modern and contemporary life, focusing on the parallels, intersections, and points of difference between their practices—Warhol representing 20th-century modernity and the “American century,” and Ai representing life in the 21st century and what has been called the “Chinese century” to come.

At The Warhol, the exhibition creates a dialogue between the artists, throughout the seven floors of the building. Visitors experience more than 350 works in drawing, film, new media, photography, painting, sculpture, wallpapers, and publishing, including some of the major contributions by both artists, each of whom is as famous for his artistic persona as for the work he produced.
A traveling Ai exhibition, Circle of Animals / Zodiac Heads, is on display at the Carnegie Museum of Art through June 4.

The Warhol is located at 117 Sandusky St. on the Northside (map). It's open every day but Monday, and adult admission is $20.
