GAGOSIAN, BEVERLY HILLS
At Gagosian’s L.A outpost,“AMERICA TOO” presents new works by Takashi Murakami and Virgil Abloh.
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.
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.
This new-found pair of kindred spirits, individual juggernauts in the fashion, art & pop culture realms, have blended their respective styles and trademarks in a Murakami-Abloh mash-up, culminating in a series of new paintings, sculptures and 3D media.
