Exhibition: MURAKAMI VS MURAKAMI @ JC Contemporary & F Hall Studio at Block 17
Jun 1 @ 10:30 am – Sep 1 @ 7:00 pm
Exhibition: MURAKAMI VS MURAKAMI @ JC Contemporary & F Hall Studio at Block 17

For his first institutional exhibition in Greater China, MURAKAMI vs MURAKAMIexplores the multifaceted universe of the cultural phenomenon of this Japanese super-star artist. Taking over all art galleries at Tai Kwun, this comprehensive survey features over 60 paintings and sculptures in a stunning, immersive setting that showcases the intriguing paradoxes embodied in the diverse work and life of Takashi Murakami: from his large-scale post-apocalyptic works to his optimistic flower pieces, and then to his contemplative Enso paintings. Also on view for the first time is a showcase of some of the artist’s outlandish costume designs, alongside other important video works, samples from his private contemporary art collection, as well as the artist’s spectacular wall and floor art.

A special pop-up store will also open in F Hall Studio, where visitors can freely enjoy neon and wallpaper works by Takashi Murakami. In many ways an extension of the artist’s intervention in a broader visual culture, the pop-up store will offer Takashi Murakami products for sale, including Tai Kwun–exclusive items made for the occasion of the exhibition.
