Takashi Murakami New Paintings at Blum and Poe May 3 – June 14th.
It’s going to happen. Takashi Murakami is doing another show. This time in the confines of a gallery. A funny and cool follow up to his huge MOCA and Brooklyn Museum show, which are retrospectives. The great thing about having this show for Murakami, is the fact that instead of reaching to another huge establishment, he’s working with his old buds, Blum and Poe (who brought him out), and doing something quite the opposite – a small show. Who knows what the works will be like, but his momentum is rolling on. He’s got bills still, right?
I’ll follow up with more info on how this all is, and maybe at what price everything is. I’ll bet it’s all sold.
*forgot to mention, Murakami makes it to the Time magazine’s 100 influential list!
I’ll probably be seeing him there and at the post dinner. If not, I’ll be seeing him in Japan when I’m out there next week. More info to come. I’ll be hitting Shanghai and Beijing.
