In accordance with the conventions of the traditional Chinese zodiac, the works are installed in an oval in the following order: Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog and Pig. Each of the works is one solid piece of bronze and stands roughly 10 feet high on a marble base. Their weight ranges from 1,500 to 2,100 pounds. The sculptures are on display for free at Nathan Phillips Square until September 22nd.

    Location: Art Gallery of Ontario (317 Dundas St W) - Toronto, Canada


    Ai Weiwei is China’s most prolific and provocative contemporary artist. His outspoken and artful criticism of the country’s Communist government has put him at the centre of a global conversation about freedom of expression and the role of art. According to What? features photographs, sculpture, installation art, and audio and video pieces and examines the complexities of a changing world, probing such issues as individual and human rights, the power of digital communication and the range of creative practice that characterizes contemporary art today.
