Astrup Fearnley Museet is proud to announce the acquisition of two new works by Ai Weiwei. The museum invited Ai Weiwei to create a work for the summer exhibition Chinese Summer and the result was a striking installation of the works Tyres (2016) and Odyssey (2017), which now belongs to the Astrup Fearnley Collection!
This year, one of the most popular and influential British artists of the 20th century; David Hockney. Tate Modern in London, Le Centre Pompidou in Paris and The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York present an all-encompassing retrospective of his life’s work.
Murakami’s wide-ranging creative practice includes the production and promotion of works by other artists, artist management and the operation of a gallery through the company Kaikai Kiki Co., Ltd.
In addition to being a respected artist and gallerist, Takashi Murakami has for the past years focused his attention on Japanese ceramics, highlighting the traditional and modern craftsmanship as an important example of art. In the exhibition Murakami by Murakami this interest is apparent – both in the exhibition galleries and Astrup Fearnley Shop!
