TAKASHI MURAKAMI: THE OCTOPUS EATS ITS OWN LEG
June 10 – September 16
Known for his collaborations with pop icon Kanye West and fashion house Louis Vuitton, and for vibrant anime-inspired characters, Japanese artist Takashi Murakami blurs the boundaries between high and low culture, ancient and modern, East and West. Organized by the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, this major retrospective of his paintings features fifty works that span three decades of the artist’s career, from his earliest mature works to his recent, monumentally scaled paintings.
The exhibition shows how Murakami’s art is rooted in traditions of Japanese painting and folklore, and highlights the artist’s careful attention to craft and materials. It also showcases his astute eye for the contemporary influences of globalization, media culture, and the continued threats of nuclear power.
Laurie Simmons: Big Camera/Little Camera
October 14 – January 27
The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth presents a major survey of works by Laurie Simmons, organized by Andrea Karnes, senior curator, with full support of the artist. This exhibition will showcase the artist’s photographs spanning the last four decades, from 1976 to the present, a small selection of sculpture, and two films.
Simmons’s career-long exploration of archetypal gender roles, especially women in domestic settings, is the primary subject of this exhibition and is a topic as poignant today as it was in the late 1970s, when she began to develop her mature style by using props and dolls as stand-ins for people and places.
