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 us for a participatory experience of the text-based artworks created by Yoko Ono in her 1964 artist’s book Grapefruit. We will convene around Sun Piece and Snow Piece in the Roof Deck Sculpture Garden and explore these performative works through group interaction and a reception.
