Juxtapoz x Superflat, a dynamic exhibition conceived by the renowned Japanese artist Takashi Murakami and co-curated with Evan Pricco, Editor-in-Chief of Juxtapoz Art & Culture, a legendary San Francisco-based magazine committed to contemporary art, design, fashion and graffiti.
Featuring the work of more than 30 artists from Japan, Korea, Canada, the United States and Europe, this exhibition at Vancouver Art Gallery runs until February 5, 2017.
The exhibit is a manifesto for new creative practices that can no longer be adequately described by the traditional categories of art and modes of production. Takashi Murakami and Evan Pricco conceived the exhibition as a survey of the most exciting visual art to emerge in recent years, with a heavy emphasis on artists who operate outside of the central hubs of the global art world.
Expanding upon Murakami and Juxtapoz magazine’s interest in flattening high and low cultures, this exhibition includes work by artists whose practice has been shaped by a variety of sub-cultures including skate, surf, graffiti, street art, comics, design, illustration, painting, digital and traditional arts.
I’m not usually into art, but I love their modern approach by using so many different mediums.
If you get a chance to visit, make sure you take lots of photos and some pieces are mesmerizing.
Some sculptures even have a familiar look.
I love this wall! When do you get a bunch of your favourite cartoon characters done in graffiti.
Of all the current exhibits at the gallery, I loved this one the most. A great time to go is on Tuesday evenings from 5:00 – 9:00 pm as it is by-donation admission. It’s definitely a good way to save some money, but it will be busy.
