When the NGV announced that famous Chinese artist Ai Weiwei was confirmed to appear live in conversation this week ahead of the Andy Warhol / Ai Weiwei exhibition, tickets disappeared quickly.

If you’ve followed any part of the artist’s turbulent career, you know there’s plenty to discuss – from his 81 days in a Chinese prison, to his most recent LEGO controversy. The latter unfolded in the lead-up to this very exhibition.

You can live-stream the entire Q&A discussion tonight between Ai and ABC journalist Virginia Trioli from here for free at 6.30pm.

Andy Warhol / Ai Weiwei will show at the National Gallery of Victoria from 11 December 2015 to 24 April 2016.
