Murakami vs. Verseilles
One of the coolest things we saw on our trip was Takashi Murakami’s installation at Verseilles. The pairing of Murakami’s kawaii aesthetic and the classic work in Verseilles has been quite controversial. As you can imagine, I think it’s fucking brilliant.
The Verseilles website has a nice overview of Murakami’s pieces and there’s a facebook page where you can read the battling opinions on the exhibit. I’ll be posting photos that we took soon as well. It’s not the same as going there in person, but you only have until December 12 of this year to check it out.
