High art and popular culture are just millimetres apart? Takashi Murakami’s works will shake up your traditional impression of the art world and creativity! Are you ready?
Following the hugely successful Takashi Murakami & Virgil Abloh exhibitions at Gagosian London and Gagosian Paris, Takashi Murakami’s solo exhibition, Change the Rule! will open on 20 September 2018 at Gagosian Hong Kong. All paintings and sculptures in the exhibition are newly-produced and will be seen for the very first time, including a monumental painting from Murakami’s Arhats series. Since his last solo exhibition at Gagosian Hong Kong six years ago, Murakami’s work has continued to evolve dramatically, drawing from sources as diverse as traditional Japanese painting, otaku subculture, Western art theory, Hollywood cinema, and hip-hop. His expansive art production has spilled not only into the art world but also into fashion, film, and commercial commodities both luxurious and cheap, erasing entrenched divisions between high art and popular culture.
