Takashi Murakami: Lineage of Eccentrics
A Collaboration with Nobuo Tsuji and the Museum of Fine Arts
Museum of Fine Arts, Boston
From 18 October 2017 to 01 April 2018

 

Over the course of nearly three decades, Takashi Murakami (born 1962) has established himself as one of today’s most imaginative artists. Drawing influences from the aesthetics of manga, anime and other elements of contemporary pop culture, he has become renowned for instantly recognizable characters, happy-faced flowers and highly saturated colors, as well as boundary-blurring collaborations with high-profile figures in music and fashion. Takashi Murakami: Lineage of Eccentrics highlights a collaboration of a different kind, revealing how the artist’s vision is also guided by an in-depth exploration of the past, fostered by his mentor, the eminent Japanese art historian Professor Nobuo Tsuji.

SUPERPOSITION – The 21st Biennale of Sydney
Sydney
From 16 March to 11 June 2018

 

The 21st Biennale of Sydney title borrows the quantum mechanical term ‘superposition’ to link the notions of equilibrium and engagement. In quantum theory, ‘superposition’ refers to the ability of electrons to occupy multiple states at once, to simultaneously take opposing paths and end up in different places. It is only with the application of measurement that matter is reduced to a single definition.

Formerly presented at Tate Modern, London, and the Museum of Modern Art, New York, the exhibition’s iteration in San Francisco pays special tribute to SFMOMA’s close and longstanding relationship with Rauschenberg. From hosting his first retrospective – organized by Walter Hopps in 1976 – to spearheading the recent Rauschenberg Research Project – an ambitious digital resource published on sfmoma.org that makes art historical and conservation research about Rauschenberg works widely accessible – SFMOMA has long been devoted to this extraordinary and trail-blazing figure. This presentation is also dedicated to Phyllis C. Wattis, in honor of her generosity and cherished relationship with the artist and SFMOMA.
