It was a great experience to see these two artists work in one place. The exhibition is very laid out in a way that every room holds a surprise. Although most of Andys works are well know having them all in one place was amazing to see

The kids area had a great exhibition of Hermannsburg Potters and kids got to design their own footy moments pot. They loved it.

This was a great morning out. I took my teenage daughters and I did the free tour at 11:30. The tour was excellent and worth doing. It gave us further insights into the life of the artists as well as the background of the art works. I loved the fact that there was a surprise in every room.

We have visited in the past but this year we went to the Andy Warhol exhibition. OMG just stunningly executed showing all the aspects of this amazing man in context. Well presented and we'll organised. Just brilliant.

Warhol/Weiwei exhibit was stunning. The counterpoint of these two artists was so well curated, I didn't mind seeing works I had seen elsewhere in a new light. The whole museum is a stunning space from the grand entrance and fountain to the galleries and the garden. A must see for Melbourne vistors.

I like going to the NGV especially with my family and friends that have kids. When I babysit I always visit there it is a great place. The times they have interactive art is so fun for all. I amazed my family and friends on how entertaining, fun and educational the art gallery can be for all ages and genres

Awesome exhibition! It was so good very well curated. If you are in Melbourne must go to NGV for the Andy Warhol & Ai Weiwei exhibition which is on until April 2016. Be prepared to spend a good day/ afternoon there. There is so much to see. I learned so much about Ai Weiwei! Highly recommend and dont miss such... More
