Murakami Mania! Are any of you planning on checking out the big Murakami exhibit that opens next week at MoCA? They're having a preview reception this weekend, and the official opening is on October 29th, 2007. Those of you unfamiliar with Murakami, might recognize his playful characters that were most famously used by Louis Vuitton for their bags that were all the rage a few years ago.
The retrospective at MoCA will be featuring more than 90 works in various media, spanning the early 1990's to the present. There will also be an official Louis Vuitton Murakami shop at MoCa, as part of the exhibit. Apparently LV has guaranteed that enough merchandise will be produced to last the duration of the exhibit.
