Takashi Murakami MOCA

Here's the pics for the show. It's pretty rad. It's going to be great, and it's everything one can expect. Take a look through the pics, it's amazing. Takashi Murakami did a talk at the press preview and kept it simple, talked about commerce and the fact that money is important. He also talked about his work, and this being his biggest show... yes it is. Also the cool thing is that he spoke it in English, which is something that he's been sort of shying away from lately. When I interviewed him way back in 2001ish, he did it in English, then he always worked with a translator.

The small MOCA shop was filled with Murakami goods, tons of it. You name it, it's there. The Louis Vuitton shop? It's going to bank big time. It's going to out rock any shop in the area for sure. Especially since it has the special MOCA only LV design.

So in the end, who comes out ahead? Where's this taking art? It's a pioneering show, and there's a lot to say about it. But I'm still taking it all in. This has to be his biggest venture yet, and I'm proud of him. Hope I get to catch up with him soon.

*Glad I shot pics, they're not allowing photos anymore.

Yeah, we sell all the same shit at GR, but they do have some of the prints, but I think a lot will be gone. We got those too though.

Amazing pictures. I had to stop looking. I've got to get out there and see it myself.

I'm also interested in prints. Will the GR webstore be restocking anytime soon?
