This major retrospective will feature key selections that span Murakami’s career from the early 1990s to the present and including early political works that critique Japan’s consumer culture and talent industries; the ongoing evolution of Murakami’s anime alter-ego, DOB; and an exploration of his large-scale otaku-inspired figure projects of the late 1990s. The artist will also premiere a new body of work that centers on a feature-length animated film. In addition, a fully functional Louis Vuitton boutique will be included in the exhibition, highlighting the artist’s continued collaboration with the luxury brand.
