Free and open to the pubic!
In conjunction with the New York premiere of his first feature film, Jellyfish Eyes, renowned Japanese pop artist Takashi Murakami will present a collection of his animated works and discuss his signature artistic style. Known for founding the postmodern art movement “Superflat,” which blurs the line between the “high” and “low” arts, as well as for his collaborations with Kanye West, Pharrell Williams, and Louis Vuitton via Marc Jacobs, the work of Murakami is deeply rooted in Japanese popular culture and draws inspiration from classic anime and manga.
