Vogue Nippon Mag to Include DVD with Murakami Anime
posted on by Egan Loo
The February issue (on sale December 26) of Vogue Nippon, the Japanese counterpart to the American women's fashion magazine Vogue, will include a DVD supplement with the first episode of the Kaikai & Kiki anime from artist Takashi Murakami. (The current January issue is pictured at right.) Murakami popularized Superflat, the style of modern art influenced by Japanese manga and anime. The Kaikai & Kiki space fantasy anime is one of the pieces unveiled at the © Murakami exhibit in the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles. Vogue Nippon's DVD will include a special version of "Tane o Maita yo" ("The Seeds Have Been Sown"), the first of four planned episodes for the project.
The Brooklyn Museum in New York City announced that it will host the © Murakami exhibition next year, followed by the Museum für Moderne Kunst in Frankfurt, Germany and the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao in Spain.
