Members see it first! In Takashi Murakami’s first solo exhibition in San Francisco, monsters reflect the perils, peaks, and possibilities of our increasingly virtual existence.
Member tickets available starting August 1st.
Murakami delivers his signature combination of fun, spectacle, and playful social commentary by way of vibrantly colored, larger-than-life paintings and sculptures, including the premiere of several new works. Member Preview Days are Thursday, Sep. 14 from 10 AM–5 PM and Friday, Sep. 15, from 10 AM–1 PM.
