The Japanese artist Takashi Murakami combines highly refined classical Japanese painting techniques with distinctive Pop sensibilities. Known for his “Superflat” style, directly influenced by manga and anime, the artist creates works that explode with color and playfulness. For the 2015–16 ski season, in collaboration with Aspen Skiing Company, Murakami has produced four unique images, all of which embody his trademark visual aesthetic.
Join AAM Writer in Residence Tim Griffin for a discussion of Nick Relph’s exhibition. Griffin is the Executive Director and Chief Curator of The Kitchen in New York City, and has previously served as Editor-in-Chief of Artforum. He will expand upon his writings on Relph’s work, particularly the video Thre Stryppis Quhite Upon ane Blak Field (2010), first shown at the 2011 Venice Biennale and now part of Relph’s first solo museum exhibition in the US at the AAM.
