This event has ended.

This fall, Asia Society devotes its entire exhibition space to a major retrospective of Japanese artist Yoshitomo Nara, one of the most influential Neo Pop artists working today. More than one hundred works including drawings, paintings, sculptures, and large-scale installations -- many of which have never been exhibited in the United States -- will trace Nara’s artistic development over the last two decades.

Born in 1959 in Japan, where he presently lives and works, Nara is internationally recognized for his work, which has inspired an enormous cult following among youth in Japan and throughout Asia. Yoshitomo Nara: Nobody’s Fool will emphasize the relationship between Nara’s art and rock and punk music which have been an ongoing source of inspiration and prevailing reference point in his work.

Coinciding with the exhibition, Asia Society and Art Production Fund will be presenting two large outdoor sculptures on Park Avenue. The sculptures will be on view from late August through November.
