Japanese contemporary artist Takashi Murakami submitted five filmmakers, including Steven Spielberg and J. J. Abrams. Tom Sachs first put down the hip-hop and R&B artists Big Boi and Frank Ocean, then crossed them out and replaced them with Gilbert & George and Sarah Sze. Two acclaimed video artists, Doug Aitkin and Douglas Gordon, braved it and included on their lists the contemporary musicians Ariel Pink and Mogwai, respectively. See the full list here.
