Man In The Mirror

Takashi Murakami has received royal approval from The Palace of Versailles with an invitation to hold a two-month retrospective later this year from September 12th to December 12th. Following in the steps of the successful, if controversial, exhibit by Jeff Koons and from French artist, Xavier Veilhan in 2009, Murakami will inject his notorious contemporary sensibility into fifteen rooms in the palace including the apartments of the King and Queen as well as the renowned Hall of Mirrors. Murakami's practice and his Superlfat movement has been practically tailored for Western audiences and will reignite Versaille's curiosity of the East once more: Superflat c'est Super!
