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.
Taking its title from French mystic, philosopher, and activist Simone Weil, Gravity & Grace examines how objects can function as physical traces and intangible links between the visible and invisible. Including work by Alice Channer, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Isa Genzken, On Kawara, Fred Sandback, and Francesca Woodman, the exhibition reveals our innate desire to make and mark the traces of our lives, exploring time not just as subject matter, but also as an engine of relativity.
June 24-28, 9 AM–3 PM
