The Noguchi Museum is proud to offer the first-ever collaborative work between FUTURA2000 and Takashi Murakami: two limited edition screenprints exclusively available through the Museum in the United States.
Signed by both FUTURA2000 and Takashi Murakami, the works, titled intermezzo TFBLK and intermezzo TFWHT, were produced by Kaikai Kiki Gallery in Japan. Each screen print was made in an edition of 100, with 50 of each first available via the Museum Shop, followed by the release of the second set of 50 of each in Japan only, through Kaikai Kiki Gallery.
In August 2020, FUTURA2000 was scheduled to have a solo exhibition at Kaikai Kiki Gallery in Tokyo, opening on what would have been the eve of the 100 metres gold medal finals at the Tokyo Olympic Games. That exhibition has been rescheduled to August 2021, but this correlating edition—a symbolic gesture of Futura and Takashi’s relationship and a cultural dialogue between Japan and the United States—finds a natural home as part of the Noguchi Museum’s collaborative Futura Akari exhibition on view through February 28, 2021.
