The instantly recognizable art of Takashi Murakami, Japan’s answer to Andy Warhol, has graced handbags, phone cases, skateboards, and album covers—in Moscow, it was recently even charbroiled onto a hamburger. Now his imagery is back in its natural habitat, hanging on walls at the Perrotin gallery. There are plenty of his signature otaku flowers, but also forays into art history, including homages to the British master of angst Francis Bacon and the Edo-period Japanese painter Soga Shohaku. Through June 17.

We are simply trying to tell a story. Our story, the story of America past and present–who we are and how we got here, and perhaps more importantly: where we are going. We have a whole lot more in store, however, so please consider helping us in that effort by visiting the FY Store, or with a donation via Patreon.
