Andy Warhol and Ai Weiwei, two incredibly familiar names in art, who have both done series depicting animals. In this exhibit, the National Museum of Wildlife Art combines Warhol’s Endangered Species series from the Museum’s permanent collection, with Ai Weiwei’s Zodiac (2018) series, comprised of Chinese Zodiac animal portraits made of thousands of colorful LEGO® bricks. Together, the unique kaleidoscopic interpretations of real and magical creatures offer a comparative look at the similarities between the two iconic artists and two narratives that bring into question how we value both animals and art.
