Takashi Murakami

For some contemporary artists, the complexities and enjoyments of everyday life are a significant focus of their work.One of the more controversial contemporary artists, Bruce Nauman creates art in a variety of materials, ranging from video installations to neon signs. Nauman’s work often focuses on simple ideas or human actions that, through examination, reveal something about the human condition. Takashi Murakami, who was recently featured at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, creates art out of cartoon images and everyday kitsch objects. Murakami also creates in a variety of materials that range from large scale painting installations to his most recent venture: a feature film, Jellyfish Eyes.

Saturday Lectures at LHUCA is an informal conversation over the life and work of contemporary artists. It’s a stress-free opportunity to examine the art and ideas that underlie much of the modern art world. Attendees are encouraged to ask questions and join the conversation.

This event is free to the public.
