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 around Oscar Tuazon’s Fire Worship to rekindle memories of the Aspen Art Museum from the last forty years. This marathon-style session will draw on voices that are to be featured in a new publication by the AAM, including individuals who participated in StoryCorps recordings in 2018. This warm gathering will collectively trace the oral history of the museum through two-minute anecdotes.
Tuesday–Sunday, 10 AM–6 PM
