Often referred to as the Andy Warhol of Japan, artist/advertiser/designer/collage-fiend Tadanori Yokoo's work certainly exemplifies the brash brightness of Pop Art. But his five decades of work complicate that picture: each poster (the medium he's most known for) draws inspiration from cinema, advertising, Japanese art, and psychedelia, and mixes them together in a truly unique way. His compositions swarm with references and images, and are still beautiful objects.

So it is with great excitement that, with the Japan Foundation Toronto, the Center for East Asian Studies, and the University of Chicago Center for East Asian Studies and University of Chicago Library, we bring some of this living legend's most recent works to Chicago. Be sure to visit the Center for East Asian Studies' website for information on how to visit the exhibit.
