Here it goes: Takashi Murakami’s going to have a Louis Vuitton shop inside of his exhibition at Moca. That’s crazy. A lot of artists, even young ones have made some issue about art purity. Is it okay to make products, is it ok if Takashi Murakami makes products and art and exploits them both? I’ve always been okay with it, as long as it’s good. He’s done that. For this exhibition, a solo at MOCA, he’s taking “it” to the next level. The retailers of all retailers, expensive bags, but custom, and probably getting a huge percentage of that sale. I’ve heard mumblings of things for months, but I think it’s official now.
