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.
In this special performance, Marc Ribot presents a live guitar score to the classic silent film, The Kid, contemporizing this classic Chaplin film to a story relevant to the economic and social conditions of today. Ribot, who Rolling Stone describes as “emotive, graceful, but with a glint of mischief in his method,” has released over twenty albums and performed with Robert Plant, Alison Krauss, Elvis Costello, and more.
