"Halfway between a handshake and a f*%k"...

It's hard to open a magazine or flip on the TV these days without stumbling across an ad or commercial unmistakably shot by downtown NYC art star photographer TERRY RICHARDSON. It’s starting to feel that way with art shows too. Since last week, Tokyo's hipster elite has been privy to an exhibition of some of the mustachioed one's funniest collections in recent memory with his JACKASS series capturing everyone's favorite idiots in moments of gloriously uncensored frolic on display at the LaFORET MUSEUM in the trendsetting epicenter of Harajuku. Of course, it wouldn't be an art show in Tokyo without some obligatory limited-edition product releases and this show sees the release of 200 special photo print T-shits, 100 photo books, And 100 box sets including an instant camera and a pair of Terry's signature sunglasses. Interestingly, a separate show of Terry's late father BOB RICHARDSON's photos is on display concurrently at the nearby ZEL GALLERY. Both shows run through Thursday, May 8th.
