Murakami’s sculptures light up LA’s MOCA


We recently visited Takeshi Murakami’s show at the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art’s Geffen Contemporary wing. The show was really impressive showcasing over 90 pieces spanning the artist’s career, in various media from film and animation to large metal and ceramic sculptures. The show features enormous pieces such as the “Oval Buddha” (2007) (pictured) and a “merchandise” room with hundreds of toys, games, posters, dolls, etc.. from Murakami’s portfolio. This show is up until February 11, 2008 so if you are in the LA area, definitely check it out..
