Richard Serra (born November 2, 1938) is an American minimalist sculptor, video artist and painter known for working with large-scale assemblies of sheet metal. Serra was involved in the Process Art Movement. Since 1971, Serra has made large-scale drawings on handmade Hitomi paper or Belgian linen using various techniques. In the early 1970s he drew primarily with ink, charcoal, and lithographic crayon on paper. His primary drawing material has been the paintstick, a wax-like grease crayon. Serra melts several paintsticks to form large pigment blocks.

For the first time in Kansas City: Norbert Frensch (born 1960 in Mainz, Germany) is a German painter. Frensch studied from 1980 to 1986 at the College of Fine Arts in Hamburg. In his conceptual series of works, the artist reflects the phenomena of perception – between visibility and imagination – with the means of painting. The “black” pictures, which have been produced since the beginning of the 1990s, have made Frensch’s work well-known and have appeared in several solo exhibitions in museums internationally. In their sensual presence, the “blacks” take up the genre of still life and vary it with the painterly principle of the Clairobscur in an seemingly endless sequence.
