(Los Angeles, CA—February 11, 2020) The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) presents Yoshitomo Nara, the first international retrospective of artist Yoshitomo Nara (b. 1959). The exhibition surveys more than 30 years of the artist’s work through the lens of his longtime passion to music. Curated by guest curator, Mika Yoshitake, the exhibition comprises more than 100 major works, including paintings, drawings, sculpture, ceramics, an installation that recreates his drawing studio, and never-before-exhibited idea sketches that reflect the artist’s empathic eye.
Following LACMA’s presentation, the exhibition will travel to the Yuz Museum, Shanghai (September 29, 2020–January 17, 2021), the Museo Guggenheim Bilbao (February– May 2021); and the Kunsthal Rotterdam (June–September 2021).
