Showing: “MURAKAMI vs MURAKAMI” @ Tai Kwun Contemporary

Over the weekend, Tai Kwun Contemporary opened an expansive new show from Takashi Murakami entitled MURAKAMI vs MURAKAMI. Taking over all the galleries at the art center, the over 60 paintings and sculptures on display represent different facets of the Japanese artist versatile practice. Included in the exhibition are paintings that range from his his large-scale post-apocalyptic works to his optimistic flower pieces to his contemplative Enso works alongside sculptures, videos works, custom carpets & wallpapers. Also on view new for the first time are Murakami’s various outlandish costumes that you often see him wear, displayed on special mannequins posed in the same manner as the artist. Rounding out the exhibition are samples from his own extensive personal art collection.
