Takashi Murakami: Superflat Doraemon
This exhibition showcases the latest Doraemon collaboration works by Takashi Murakami. It marks Murakami’s 13th solo exhibition with Perrotin and the first to be held at Perrotin Tokyo. This new exhibition follows Murakami’s museum exhibitions throughout the world, and is held in response to the group exhibition THE Doraemon Exhibition, held at Mori Arts Center Gallery in 2017 and has been touring across Japan, as well as the 50th anniversary of Doraemon in 2020.
Born in 1962 in Tokyo, Takashi Murakami still lives and works in Tokyo. In 2018, Murakami was exhibited at the Fondation Louis Vuitton and at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. In 2019, he had a solo show at Tai Kwun in Hong Kong. Since 2015, eight high-profile international museums have hosted major Takashi Murakami solo exhibitions, including Mori Art Museum, Tokyo, Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago and Garage Museum of Contemporary Art, Moscow. The exhibitions all brought a record number of visitors to the museums in which they were held.
Opening reception: November 19 | 17:00–19:00
