NGV's book publication in conjunction the with Andy Warhol | Ai Weiwei Studio Cats Exhibition
The Andy Warhol | Ai Weiwei exhibition, developed by the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) and The Andy Warhol Museum, with the participation of Ai Weiwei, closes this weekend *insert emoji sad face!*.
Part of the exhibition sees a large-scale installation in the children's gallery; Studio Cats. This FREE exhibition draws upon Andy Warhol and Ai Weiwei's creative connections between the two artists and their mutual love of cats.
"Popular as a family pet, cats also have a strong presence in the homes and studios of Andy Warhol and Ai Weiwei. Ai Weiwei’s cats, whose names include Bai Bai, Din Din and Garfield, appear frequently in the artist’s social media posts and their behaviour is often mentioned in Ai’s conversations. In turn, Andy Warhol’s fondness for cats was captured in his early career ink-blot drawings and photography." c/o NGV
To celebrate the amazing exhibition, we have two souvenir books to give away to KidTown Melbourne readers.
Studio Cats Andy Warhol | Ai Weiwei: An Art Book for Kids is designed for little creatives. Inspired by Warhol and Weiwei's artwork and love for cats, Studio Cats is filled with fun illustrations and art-making activities for kids at home or at school.
