Offered in partnership with Amphibian Stage Productions, the Modern Contemporaries will receive priority ticket access and a discounted rate to this immersive performing arts experience that sold out venues across DFW in 2017. It’s time to get real and sing along about the one thing we all have in common: we’re gonna die. This existential cabaret boldly explores the rough moments of life with humor, insight, and pop music.
Known for his collaborations with pop icon Kanye West and fashion house Louis Vuitton, and for vibrant anime-inspired characters, Japanese artist Takashi Murakami (b. 1962) has blurred the boundaries throughout his career between high and low culture, ancient and modern, East and West. Organized by the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, the exhibition is a major retrospective of his paintings, featuring fifty works that span three decades of his career, from the artist’s earliest mature works to his recent, monumentally scaled paintings.
