If you live in New York or plan on visiting soon, you should definitely check out the Yoshitomo Nara exhibition at the Asia Society. Lauded by art critics and hipsters alike, his bizarrely intriguing works have gained him a cult following around the world. Nara has been featured in numerous other group and solo exhibitions in Asia, Europe, and the United States, but Nobody’s Fool is the first major New York exhibition of the Japanese artist. The show features more than one hundred works ranging from his early career in the 1980s to his most recent paintings, drawings, sculptures, ceramics, and large-scale installations. As one of the leading artists of Japan’s influential Neo Pop art since the 1990s, Nara is well known for his depictions of children and animals. His popular appeal masks the serious social and personal dimensions of his work—feelings of helplessness and rage, and a sense of isolation in a hyper-networked society. The exhibition continues until January 2nd, 2011, so you still have plenty of time to get to this fun and equally fascinating show.
