Chinese contemporary artist and activist Ai Weiwei speaks to the audience Thursday, June 2, 2016, during a discussion of his work and influences with Eric Shiner, director of the Andy Warhol Museum, at the Carnegie Music Hall, Downtown.

The exhibit “Andy Warhol | Ai Weiwei,” which has been at the Andy Warhol Museum since June 4, has been extended for two weeks, until Sept. 11.

The famed Chinese dissident artist visited Pittsburgh in June at the opening of the Warhol exhibit and his “ Circle of Animals | Zodiac Heads ” at the Carnegie Museum of Art in Oakland. The Carnegie Museum exhibit is open through Aug. 29.

The North Shore exhibit, developed by the Warhol Museum and the National Gallery of Victoria, 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.

The Warhol is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Sundays and until 10 p.m. Fridays. Admission is $20, $10 for students and children. A special dual ticket is available for the Warhol and the Carnegie for $30, $15 for students and children.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
