Taking over Shanghai’s Perrotin Gallery, the Japanese artist has been set to curate a new group exhibition featuring a dynamic selection of artworks from his Kaikai Kiki arts organization. Healing revolves around Murakami’s Superflat movement — a lineage of Japanese contemporary art that is rooted in anime and manga.
Apart from his own original artworks including flower motifs and sculptures of Kaikai and Kiki characters, the exhibition is also featuring works by participating artists Chiho Aoshima, Emi Kuraya, Takuro Kuwata, KYNE, Kasing Lung, MADSAKI, Mr., Shin Murata, ob, Otani Workshop, Aya Takano, TENGAone, and Yuji Ueda. Highlights include biomorphic ceramic sculptures by Otani Workshop, surrealist compositions by Chiho Aoshima and Aya Takano, as well as paintings by Mr. that portray video game-esque reimaginings of everyday Japanese girls.
Take a look at some of the works below and visit Perrotin’s website for more info. Healing runs until March 20.
