Murakami : EGO
'We can't get enough of Murakami. This new book lets us explore the artist's creative process and offers a lens into his unique status as a critic of popular culture' - Complex
Takashi Murakami is celebrated the world over for his deft blurring of high and low art. This volume accompanies a major exhibition of his work at Qatar Museums and features some of the artist's most celebrated series, including Kaikai Kiki Lots of Faces and Pom and Me.
Murakami conceived of the exhibition itself as a work of art, creating new modes of display that include sculptural pedestals with digital animation, a circus tent that doubles as an indoor cinema, and an impressive 300-foot-long painting, all of which are featured in the book. In addition to an interview by curator Massimiliano Gioni, Murakami will contribute writings on various works.
