Takashi Murakamiʼs Jellyfish Eyes
Born in Tokyo in 1962, Takashi Murakami is one of the most acclaimed artists to have emerged from Asia in the late 20th century. The Asian Art Museum presents a screening of the artist’s first feature film, Jellyfish Eyes (Mememe no kurage) (2013), which combines the artist’s trademark anime-inspired visual aesthetic with themes of social change and self-empowerment. The film is a coming-of-age tale set in a post-Fukushima world, recalling Japanese monster films of the 1950s while embodying the promise of generational hope.
