Takashi Murakami: GYATEI²
March 23 @ 10:00 am
An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until April 13, 2019
Drawing from traditional Japanese painting, sci-fi, anime, and the global art market, Takashi Murakami creates paintings, sculptures, and films populated by repeated motifs and mutating characters of his own creation. His wide-ranging work embodies an intersection of pop culture, history, and fine art.
“The title of the show references the climactic mantra, ‘gyatei, gyatei, haragyatei, harasogyatei,’ that comes at the end of the Heart Sutra. This phrase could be full of meaning or devoid of meaning—some say it imitates an infant’s cry and, when chanted loudly, signifies rebirth.” —Takashi Murakami
