Exhibit: January 30 (Sat) – April 3 (Sun), 2016 (closed thursdays)
Known the world over for his fusion of contemporary art and traditional Japanese painting, contemporary artist Takashi Murakami reveals his private collection at the Yokohama Museum of Art later this month. Having just launched his mind bending “The 500 Arhats” exhibit at the Mori Art Museum in Roppongi in October, the “Superflat Collection” exhibits a wide array of material that shows Murakami’s unique aesthetic sensibilities. The “Superflat Collection” displays a variety of contemporary art, European antiques, folk art, and traditional Japanese and Asian artifacts, thus transcending strict hierarchical divisions of genres and artistic eras. One is allowed to view art as a process that exists in “flat” horizontal space, without boundaries or creative restrictions. The collection is sure to display the multifaceted influences on Murakami’s own works, so if you’re looking for something a little out of the ordinary, contemporary, or traditional, step into the world of Murakami’s Superflat Collection at Yokohama Museum of Art.
