Fall Culture Travel: Copyright Murakami
Our Fall Culture Map will give you things to ponder over that second piece of pie.
There's no faster way to our heart than putting together a rollicking art show by an artist who "effortlessly navigates between the worlds of fine art and popular culture." So we're gagging to get to The Geffen Contemporary branch of the Museum of Contemporary Art in LA.
Running until February 11, the oddly-titled exhibition features a retrospective of works by Japanese shining star Takashi Murakami, with painting, sculpture, film and installation all represented. (We're hoping to see some of his cherry-bedecked Louis Vuitton bags.)
© Murakami will also feature the premiere of the artist's newest animated film and a self-portrait in sculpture with Takashi as a buddha. If that's not blending high culture and low culture, we don't know what is. Oh, did we mention the show's in Los Angeles?
