After taking over the Gagosian Gallery in February to present their Future History exhibition, Virgil Abloh and Takashi Murakami are back at it with another collaborative showcase at the Paris-based gallery.
"TECHNICOLOR 2" Collaborative show with @virgilabloh set for @Gagosian Paris, June 22nd
The new exhibition, entitled Technicolor 2, puts the spotlight on new artwork between both artists, which was initially teased back in March, depicting their signature styles and trademarks intersecting in a series of vibrant mash-ups.
With the art piece dubbed “Times Nature,” Murakami’s playful and colorful flower sculpture is essentially juxtaposed against Virgil Abloh‘s OFF-WHITE intersecting arrows logo, and rendered in three different variations of color to correlate with the exhibition’s theme.
It’s worth noting that Murakami’s inspiration draws from traditional Japanese painting, Otaku subculture, Western art theory, Hollywood, and hip-hop, while Abloh is linked towards fashion, architecture, and consumer products, that is often deconstructed.
Technicolor 2 will be displayed at the Gagosian Paris starting June 23 until July 22, 2018. If you’re located near or visiting the area, head on over to the official address below.
