Andy Warhol epitomised the pop art of the 20th century, Ai Weiwei embodies the Instagram generation and activism of the 21st. Now the two artists will be brought together in a major new exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) in December.

Warhol's One Dollar Bill fetches £20.9m on record night for Sotheby's



Developed by the NGV and the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh (where it will show in June 2016), Andy Warhol | Ai Weiwei will present more than 300 works, exploring the parallels and points of difference in their art and influence on contemporary culture.

The exhibition will span painting, sculpture, film, photography and social media – no surprise given the involvement of Ai, a prolific blogger who has 277,000 followers on Twitter, 108,000 on Instagram and claims to spend up to eight hours online every day.

The Chinese artist has spoken openly of the influence of Warhol and his “famous for 15 minutes” prediction on his work. When Ai moved to the US in 1981, The Philosophy of Andy Warhol (From A to B & Back Again) was the first book he purchased and in 1987, he took a photographic self-portrait in front of Warhol’s own self-portrait at the Museum of Modern Art, showing both artists adopting the same gesture.

‘‘I believe this is a very interesting and important exhibition and an honour for me to have the opportunity to be exhibited alongside Andy Warhol,” said Ai of the Melbourne show. “This is a great privilege for me as an artist.”

The curators call the artists “exemplary figures”: Warhol representing modernity and the “American century” and Ai Weiwei contemporary life in the Chinese century” to come. The exhibition will feature new commissions by Ai, including installations from his Forever Bicycles and Chandelier series, as well as previously unseen works by Warhol from his small press books.

And it wouldn’t be an internet-influenced show without some cats – as a large-scale installation in the NGV Kids space will show. Warhol lived with a herd of Siamese cats in the 1950s, who often make cameos in his work of the period, while more than 30 cats have the run of Ai’s studio in Beijing and his social media feeds.

O artista chinês tem falado abertamente da influência de Warhol e seu "famoso por 15 minutos" previsão sobre o seu trabalho. Quando Ai mudou para os EUA em 1981, The Philosophy of Andy Warhol (From A to B & Back Again) foi o primeiro livro que ele comprou e, em 1987, ele tomou um auto-retrato fotográfico na frente do próprio auto-retrato de Warhol no Museu de Arte Moderna, mostrando ambos os artistas adoptam o mesmo gesto.

'' Eu acredito que esta é uma exposição muito interessante e importante e uma honra para mim ter a oportunidade de ser exibido ao lado de Andy Warhol ", disse Ai do show Melbourne. "Este é um grande privilégio para mim como artista."

Museo Naval de Madrid

El Museo Naval en Madrid es una entidad cultural de titularidad estatal, situada en la primera planta del Cuartel General de la Armada en el Paseo del Prado. Está gestionada por el Ministerio de Defensa, con dependencia orgánica del Almirante Jefe del Estado Mayor de la Armada y regida por un Real Patronato.



La misión del Museo consiste en adquirir, conservar, comunicar y exhibir para fines educativos y de contemplación, piezas de valor histórico, científico y técnico relacionados con la actividad naval, a fin de difundir la historia marítima de España, contribuir a salvaguardar sus tradiciones y promover la conciencia marítima nacional.
El origen del Museo Naval se remonta al 28 de septiembre de 1792, gracias a una excelente iniciativa de don Antonio Valdés y Fernández Bazán, Secretario de Marina del rey Carlos IV de España.
Con ese objeto, el capitán de navío Josef de Mendoza y Ríos fue comisionado a Francia y Gran Bretaña para comprar libros, mapas y otros materiales para la biblioteca, y los tenientes de navío Martín Fernández de Navarrete, José de Vargas Ponce y Juan Sanz y Barutell, enviados a distintos archivos españoles para copiar todos los manuscritos referentes a asuntos de Marina, mientras se empezaba la recogida de materiales para formar las colecciones del proyectado Museo.
El Museo Naval fue inaugurado provisionalmente el 19 de noviembre de 1843 por la reina Isabel II de España, en el Casa o Palacio de los Consejos, en la calle Mayor de Madrid, actualmente sede de la Región Militar Centro.
A comienzos de 1845 se trasladaron las colecciones a un nuevo local, la Casa del Platero, situada en la calle Bailén, entre el Palacio Real y la desaparecida Iglesia de Santa María de la Almudena. A causa de riesgo inminente de derrumbamiento del edificio, en 1853 se trasladó el Museo al Palacio de los Ministros, antigua casa de Godoy hasta 1807, junto al actual palacio del Senado, en la plaza de la Marina Española, reabriéndose al público el 27 de noviembre del citado año de 1853, con asistencia de la reina Isabel y los miembros del Gobierno.
El Museo se reabrió de nuevo en octubre de 1932 en su sede actual del antiguo Ministerio de Marina. El origen de las colecciones del Museo es muy diverso, hay aportaciones valiosísimas de la Casa Real, la antigua Secretaría de Marina, las extinguidas Compañías de Guardias Marinas, los Departamentos Navales de la Península y los apostaderos de Filipinas y Cuba, el Depósito Hidrográfico, el Real Instituto y Observatorio de San Fernando y el Instituto Hidrográfico de Cádiz.
Las salas expositivas del Museo, ordenadas cronológicamente, contienen las colecciones de objetos históricos de muy diversa índole y que van desde el siglo XV hasta la actualidad.
Para acceder al Museo Naval es imprescindible presentar el DNI si se es de un país miembro de la U.E o pasaporte para el resto de los ciudadanos.

CONSCIOUS CONSUMPTION: CRAFTING THE CITY



Object + Idea | Ask the big questions about what you wear, eat and take in

Be part of Conscious Consumption series 2 as the Textile Museum of Canada pulls together important conversations about consumption and moves them into the city around us. We start with the premise that consumption is an everyday activity that benefits from awareness. We also see it as a deeply personal one – full of commitment, passion and learning.

Towards a personal code of consumption

What do I consume?
How and where are things made?
What makes “craft” craft?
And does it matter to me?

Hear big ideas, get the inside scoop! Join us as we explore how the idea of craft has become part of philosophies of a more responsible life, driving artisanal and sustainable movements today. Each event in the series gets up close and personal with places and people who have pioneered ways of life that are innovative and independent, and who have introduced new elements to the landscape – from urban agriculture and alternative architectures to craft foodways and sustainable fashion. Conscious Consumption: Crafting the City focuses on essentials – food, shelter, clothing – and how craft is an inherent part of practices that are a defining part of sustainable lifestyles today.

Conscious Consumption is presented with the support of TD Friends of the Environment as well as the K.M. Hunter Charitable Foundation.

The Textile Museum of Canada is a fully accessible facility.



Hydra’s Historic Archives and Museum, Hydra is one of the Saronic Islands of Greece,

The Historic Archives and Museum of Hydra (IAMY), supervised by the Ministry of Education, gathers and catalogs documents and artifacts related to Hydra, particularly the history, culture, and tradition of the island. 

Located on the eastern side of the port a short distance from the coastguard headquarters, this museum was originally given to the municipality in 1918 and later transferred to the Greek state by local ship owner Gikas Koulouras. The new two-storey facility, built in 1972, was officially opened in 1996 and houses the island’s historical archives.

Maintenance and improvement to the property are also made possible by a contribution from Hydra’s mayor, Dr. Antonios Lignos.

The ground floor houses an extensive library, a memorabilia collection from the Balkan Wars through to World War II, and archival materials. The first floor hosts an exhibition of costumes, weapons and a library, while the second floor documents the area’s key historical events.

One of the more curious items on display is the preserved heart of the great fighter and admiral Andreas Miaoulis.


Today the archive includes some 20,000 original manuscripts, codices books, and other historic rare documents and materials. The museum displays artifacts from national and Hydriot history and culture, as well as paintings by well-known artists. 



Founded in 1918, IAMYmoved to its current, specially constructed location in 1972.



Covering two floors, the museum displays, among other items, firearms, weapons, and artifacts from the Greek Revolution, Balkan Wars, and World Wars I and II, eighteenth- and nineteenth-century heirlooms, marine maps and nautical equipment, traditional dress and folk costumes, the figureheads of ships, and, perhaps somewhat ghoulishly, the embalmed heart of Admiral Andreas Miaoulis, Hydriot hero of the 1821 revolution. Lining the walls of the first floor and staircase are paintings by Greek and European artists.

Archives

The File Department catalogs and preserves all documents, both public and private, relating to Hydra’s history, civilization, and traditions from the time of Ottoman rule to the present. These files comprise a significant historical source of information about island and it’s importance during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. A rich library contains more than five thousand old and rare volumes, some dating to the early eighteenth century.

Museo de Ciencias Naturales y el Petróleo "Prof. Rodolfo Parodi Bustos", Argentina

Fue creado con el nombre de Museo Regional de Ciencias Naturales “Prof. Rodolfo Parodi Bustos” el 29 de octubre de 1993 con el fin de exhibir las piezas arqueológicas y paleontológicas colectadas por Dante Tejada Aparicio y el grupo expedicionario General Mosconi. Las campañas se realizaron en las quebradas que conforman la selva pedemontana de las yungas salto –jujeñas en las que está inmerso el Municipio de Gral. Enrique Mosconi.




La primera sala ofrece un paneo de la historia evolutiva del planeta, con colecciones de minerales y organismos vivos. Continúa con muestras de pequeños y grandes moluscos que habitaron los mares durante las eras paleozoica y mesozoica para llegar a los restos óseos de grandes mamíferos, Gliptodontes, stegomastodontes, megaterios, entre otros.

Dentro de este contexto se puede disfrutar de una pintoresca muestra de los animales que pueblan actualmente la zona, realizados por artesanos de la comunidad wichi. Destaca en esta muestra de la fauna autóctona un ejemplar de la mariposa caimán o machaca, un espécimen cuya particularidad es que su cabeza replica asombrosamente la del lagarto que le da nombre.

Se exhiben piezas arqueológicas consistentes en urnas funerarias de las culturas Santamariana y Aba-Guaraní, hachas, martillos y pecanas líticas, fragmentos de cerámica utilitaria junto a una copa ceremonial también de la cultura Santamariana.

Como parte fundamental de la historia petrolera de la zona se exhiben fotografías y documentos de la epopeya del inmigrante español Don Francisco Xavier Tobar, que lo lleva a descubrir y extraer petróleo un año y medio antes del hallazgo fortuito que se realizara en Comodoro Rivadavia (13 de diciembre de 1907).

El museo contiene también objetos de la ex escuela de enfermería de la Standard, conocida como “Escuela de Nurses de Campamento Central” (1937- 1959) donados por ex alumnas y descendientes. Las salas de este museo se han convertido en un apoyo ineludible para los estudiantes en carreras universitarias afines a la industria petrolífera.
