Hang time with the master...

Had the chance to spend some time catching up with TAKASHI MURAKAMI the other day as the Pop demigod prepared for the grand opening of his forthcoming retrospective show, "© Murakami" set to debut publicly on October 29th at MoCA's GEFFEN CONTEMPORARY in Downtown LA's Little Tokyo district. Surveying the entire span of the legendary artist's career, the show is an absolutely mind-boggling affront to the senses and a nearly comprehensive catalog of Murakami's "greatest hits" from the past 10 years. We may not be able to show the installation views of the exhibit just yet (check back next Friday for the full update), but rest assured, everything you could hope to see—from 20-foot tall sculptures to massive multi-panel painted masterworks—is present and accounted for in MoCA's cavernous installation space. TAKE A LOOK:
