<br>World-renowned Chinese contemporary artist Ai Weiwei is a sculptor, installation artist, architectural designer, curator, and social and cultural critic who has been exhibiting his work internationally since the late 1990s. His artistic practice is inextricably linked with cultural engagement and willingly crosses barriers between different media—cultural, artistic, and social. It was perhaps his detention from 2011 until August 2015 by the Chinese government that brought his views to the greatest audience. Ai Weiwei now lives in Germany and continues to create new works and uses his significant international profile to promote artistic and personal freedom.
<br>
<br>These twelve sculptures depict the animals associated with the traditional Chinese zodiac. Ai Weiwei’s cycle references a European rendering of the zodiac animals designed by the Italian Jesuit Giuseppe Castiglione. The original sculptures were built in the eighteenth century for an elaborate water-clock fountain at the Yuanming Yuan (Old Summer Palace), which was ransacked in 1860. By recreating the lost and displaced statues, Ai Weiwei engages issues of looting, repatriation, and cultural heritage while expanding upon ongoing themes in his work concerning the “fake” and “copy” in relation to the original.
<br>
<br>Ai Weiwei now works in Berlin, Germany.

Marc Quinn is one of the most influential members of the YBA or Young British Artists who emerged in the 1990s through their shocking artwork underpinned by radical new approaches to art making. A multidisciplinary artist, Quinn’s output explores and blurs the boundaries of art, science, and technology along with issues of corporeality, decay, and preservation.
<br>
<br>This painting is part of his series derived from scientific photographs of solar eclipses from the last 100 years. Quinn brings to the fore themes of temporality – the duration of an eclipse against human life, human life against the cyclical cosmos. What does it mean to capture a temporal action? The series name “Anthropocene” is a nod to the human effect on nature. Not just conceptually deep, the painting is aesthetically beautiful, capturing the explosion of reds, oranges, and yellows during the cosmic event. The circular canvas is sympathetic to the eclipse of the moon across the sun.

Contemporary German artist Katharina Grosse works in a variety of media to accomplish site-specific works as well as smaller-scale sculptures such as the present work, "Untitled 2015".  The structure of Grosse's compositions are meant to invoke emotional reactions from the viewer.  The artist believes that the physical presence of the viewer affects the work and changes an individual's experience of that work.  
<br>
<br>Grosse is included in numerous museum collections worldwide, including the Museum of Modern Art, New York, and in 2019 was selected for a mural commission at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. "Untitled, 2015" has a prestigious exhibition history, having been included in: Venice Biennale Art, "All the World's Future," 2015 by Okwui Enwezor (curator).  
<br>
<br>"That is the challenge for me, to find a way to make painting visible - make it a visceral part of our everyday life"- Katharina Grosse.
