Exhibition Catalogue
Takashi Muramkami:
The Octopus Eats Its Own Leg

Available online and in the Gallery Store
286-page, full-colour, softcover catalogue

This landmark publication accompanies a major retrospective exhibition of Takashi Murakamiís paintings. Although other volumes on Murakami in English address the crossover between his fine art and commercial output, this book presents the first serious consideration of his work as a painter. It provides a sustained consideration of the artistís relationship to the tradition of Japanese painting and his facility in straddling high and low, ancient and modern, eastern and western, commercial and high art. Lavishly illustrated with large-scale images of works that span his art student days to nowómany reproduced together for the first timeóthe book contextualizes Murakamiís output in postwar Japan with essays that situate the artist in relation to folklore, traditional Japanese painting Nihonga, the Tokyo art scene in the 1980s and 1990s, and the threat of nuclear annihilation. The volume includes essays by curator Michael Darling, Michael Dylan Foster, Chelsea Foxwell, Reuben Keehan and Akira Mizuta Lippit, as well as a biography and exhibition history, selected bibliography and index.

Published by the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago/KaiKai KiKi Co., Ltd. on the occasion of the exhibition Takashi Murakami: The Octopus Eats Its Own Leg, organized by the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago and curated by Michael Darling, James W. Alsdorf Chief Curator. Currently on view at the Vancouver Art Gallery from February 3 to May 6, 2018.
