THE CRATED ROOMS IN ICELAND - YOSHITOMO NARA + YNG. PRIVAT VIEW IN HAFNARHÚS 17 SEPTEMBER AT 5 P.M.
World-renowned artist Yoshitomo Nara has created a new installation for the Reykjavík Art Museum in collaboration with Hideki Toyoshima, one of the founders of the design collaborative graf. The room-sized installation, consisting of shipping crates and billboards, places Nara’s iconic images in a new and unexpected context.
Within the shipping crates, visitors will find paintings, drawings, and sculptures by Nara himself. Nara is often associated with the contemporary Japanese Pop art movement, which is known as “Superflat.” Nara currently lives and works in Tokyo, though his artwork has been exhibited worldwide. Nara has had nearly 40 solo exhibitions since 1984. He is represented by Michael Zink Gallery in Berlin. The exhibition is supported by the Japan Foundation.
