what did we visit: LV

i went to the louis vuitton: a passion for creation exhibit at the hong kong museum of art this past sunday july 19. unfortunately - these are practically the only two photos i managed to take because you're not allowed to take photos in the museum. shown here is the triptych by gilbert and george entitled "class war, militant, gateway"dated 1986. the exhibit began may 22 and will last until august.

i particularly liked the takashi murakami section of the exhibition - murakami being one of my favorite artists. i actually liked the part featuring artist collaborations with LV and actual LV history of the three part show the best. the other two parts included one made up of local hong kong artists and one called "the collection, a choice" made up of a variety of large-scale pieces by significant European, American and Chinese artists from the Fondation Louis Vuitton Pour la Creation.

let me reiterate. i love takashi murakami. his art is amazing and i wish i could have taken a million photos. i particularly liked his two short animations.
