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.
This winter break, the museum offers six days of concurrent workshops for 4–5 year-olds and 6–10 year-olds to take inspiration from artists on view at the museum. Each day dives into a different creative challenge, winter activities, and a chance to play through art making.
Aspen Art Press’s catalogue Cheryl Donegan: GRLZ + VEILS is published to accompany her traveling museum exhibition, organized by the Aspen Art Museum and on view from June–December 2018.
New York–based artist Cheryl Donegan (born 1962) is well known for her integration of performance and video with painting and installation, and her subversive spin on issues pertaining to gender, sex and art. This first substantial survey of her work examines her paintings, and includes new, highly conceptual work that continues to transgress traditional media, often merging painting with fashion and appropriated imagery gleaned from pop culture.
Featuring texts by Anja Aronowsky Cronberg, Bill Arning, Daniel Baumann, Bob Buck, Johanna Burton, Wade Guyton, Rem Koolhaas, Heidi Zuckerman, the publication offers a poignant and introspective look at Donegan’s multilayered practice.
