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.
Free, drop-in spotlight tours led by museum staff are offered every Wednesday and Saturday at 1 p.m.
Presenting a wide range of themes, film screenings at the AAM reveal important perspectives of filmmakers and artists of our time.

This unconventional documentary follows the everyday lives of two reclusive, formerly upper-class women: a mother and daughter both named Edith Beale. This aunt and cousin of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis live their eccentric lives in a decaying mansion in East Hampton, in a sort of timeless bubble of uncompromised and eccentric character.
