Free guided tours for blind and visually-impaired visitors around Takashi Murakami’s exhibition Under the Radiation Falls

Public program for the exhibition Takashi Murakami.Under the Radiation Falls
1 November 2017 – 4 February 2018

DESCRIPTION

These tours have been developed specially to introduce blind and visually-impaired visitors to the works of contemporary Japanese artist Takashi Murakami, and the selected prints and paintings from the collection of the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts.

The exhibition Under the Radiation Falls at Garage Museum of Contemporary Art is the first major survey of Takashi Murakami’s work in Russia and spans several periods of his career, from the 1990s until now.

The show reveals the artist’s inquiries into the nuanced facets of Japanese culture and public consciousness, blurring the line between high and low culture while merging various media into one continuous flow of images.

The exhibition at Garage includes more than eighty paintings, drawings (including prints), and films by Murakami from the collections of 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa; Mori Art Museum, Tokyo; and private collections. The exhibition also includes traditional Japanese engravings and paintings from the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts, Moscow, various artifacts from Murakami's studio, and photographs and examples of manga from Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum.

These guided tours have been developed by Galina Novotortseva, Garage Inclusive Programs manager
