The contemporary art museum in Shanghai recently opened a show highlighting Andy Warhol's art. However missing from the exhibition were the artist's portraits of former Chinese leader Mao Zedong. The Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, that gave more that 300 pieces for the exhibition, said prior to the show that the Zedong portraits would not be shown. The exhibition's Chinese hosts were against displaying the pieces. Shanghai strives to become an art capital similar to New York and Paris, however censorship in the city has critics doubting that possibility.
