AMÂ has brought a little holiday cheer straight from Europe.Â Continuing with our coverage of Takashi Murakami’s show at theÂ Museum fÃ¼r Moderne Kunst in Frankfurt, Germany (previewed here), we took some pictures of the amazing retrospectiveÂ for the founder of the “superflat” art movement.
Kaikai & Kiki animation video preview from the retrospective.
The MMK has dedicated all three floors of its museum for the massive show of over 130 works containing various media â€“ painting, sculpture, installation, and video. We can see thatÂ some timeless Murakami masterpieces such as 727, Lonesome Cowboy, Tan Tan Bo, and Multicolore remained (posted here), but we also noted the inclusion of several new pieces including paintings from Murakami’s latest Louis Vuitton collaboration: “Monogramouflage“, Kaikai and Kiki, paintings andÂ wallpaper, and also works from his most recent Blum & Poe exhibition: Davy Jone’s Tear. This veritable carnival for your eyes ends January 4th, so if you’re lucky enough to be visiting Germany this is a MUST SEE!
All pictures and info regarding the final stop in Spain after the jump!
This is the 3rd stop of a plannedÂ four part museum retrospective that started with the MOCA in Los Angeles, followed by a stop in New York at the Brooklyn Museum (seen here). The final leg of this amazingÂ exhibition will be at the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao in Spain starting February 17th, 2009. As always, look to AMÂ to bring you continuing coverage.
