Culture: Takashi Murakami x Virgil Abloh – “AMERICA TOO”

Off White curator, Virgil Abloh, and the “Andy Warhol of Japan,” Takashi Murakami link once more for Exhibit, America Too.

There is a zone of supremacy in the art world and there is a sense that fine art is the most precious and has the highest status. My collaboration with Virgil is trying to create something that is completely outside of that framework.
—Takashi Murakami

Satire and irony are looming themes that are part of our now. Our dialogue is not so much embedded in the art; it’s embedded in the atmosphere that we’re creating.
—Virgil Abloh

View the artwork October 10th-25th at Gagosian (Beverly Hills, 456 North Camden Drive)
