Asia Society Presents Work
by Japanese Artist Yoshitomo Nara

Exhibition: Yoshitomo Nara: Nobody's Fool

September 9, 2010 through January 2, 2011 at Asia Society Museum
725 Park Avenue at 70th Street, New York.
This fall, Asia Society devotes its entire museum space to a major exhibition 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 installation works—created over the last two decades and many of which have never been exhibited in the United States—will emphasize the relationship of Nara's art to rock and punk music, an ongoing source of inspiration and prevailing reference point in his work.

The full press release is attached to the left and available in English and Japanese.
