Juxtapoz x Superflat
Exhibition, Vancouver Art Gallery, Vancouver, Canada.
Juxtapoz x Superflat is a manifesto for new creative practices that can no longer be adequately described by the traditional categories of art and production. Presenting the work of more than 30 artists from Japan, China, Korea, Europe, the US, and Canada, the exhibition offers an insight into contemporary art and its place in cultural life.
Conceived by Japanese artist Takashi Murakami, the show is a survey of the most exciting visual art to emerge in recent years, with a heavy emphasis on artists who operate outside the central hubs of the global art world and whose work tends toward flattening high and low cultures.
