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.
