MURAKAMI Takashi Show and Freezing Mother with Baby. Kyoto’s Problematic Image. Minor, B-Class Exhibitions @ Kyoto City KYOCERA Museum of Art 村上隆個展と凍える母親と赤ちゃん。問題のある京都のイメージ。マイナー、Bクラスの展覧会 @ 京都市京セラ美術館

Cold 3rd of February 2024. Mother with baby waiting 8 hours in front of the Kyoto City Kyocera Museum of Art

I really do love Kyoto. I can’t count, how many times I visited Kyoto and stayed with my foreign friends in wonderful, traditional Ryokans in the last 40 years.
Because I LOVE Kyoto, the latest problematic circumstances at the Kyoto City KYOCERA Museum of Art 京都市京セラ美術館 are breaking my heart. This is not the Kyoto I know.

“It” all started with the solo show of extreme right wing, conservative artist IDA Yukimasa 井田幸昌 at the Kyoto City KYOCERA Museum of Art, last year.

右翼の為、1千600万円で販売した、アドルフ・ヒトラー像を描いた井田幸昌。ファック・ユー。
IDA Yukimasa painted a portrait of Adolf Hitler, which sold for 120.000 US$, for the Right-Wing. FUCK YOU.
https://art-culture.world/articles/ida-yukimasa-adolf-hitler/

The Japan Times article had been hidden, censured by 34 years old Ida, who normally posts everything about him and calls his young wife, with the extremely discriminating word, “Ofukuro” お袋.

‘Panta Rhei’: Yukimasa Ida is still searching for his own voice
Japan Times, 3 November 2023, by Lance Henderstein

quote:
Ida’s statement gives us only a confused description involving women’s position in society (the table is populated by what appear to be women), artificial intelligence and robots replacing humans (the supposed women are in fact “objects,” he explains); it’s a muddle of contemporary issues combined in the name of satire. What Ida’s “Last Supper” is satirizing isn’t at all clear, and the rigid, collage-like treatment lacks the primal energy and ecstatic beauty of Ida’s other works.
Like a talented musician who can solo with the best of them but struggles to write a classic song of his own, Ida seems to have chosen to rely on sampling great artists of the past, which may actually suit the current times of cut-and-paste meme culture but also feels like artistic immaturity.
https://www.japantimes.co.jp/culture/2023/11/04/art/yukimasa-ida-panta-rhei/

With some money, the Kyoto City KYOCERA Museum of Art, lets “everyone” do an exhibition, like Ida’s. As Jerome Sans and I are close friends since over 20 years, let me assure you, that Jerome played the “pseudo-curator” for Ida’s ‘Panta Rhei’ for some extra money (plus flight, meals and accommodations in Japan) with a troublesome smile on his face.

Now let’s get to the next B-Class exhibition in the Kyoto City KYOCERA Museum of Art during 2021.

With little money, a somehow amateurish curatorial practice could be noticed with the exhibition “Bubbles / Debris: Art during the Era of Japanese Emperor (Emeritus) Akihito’s Reign 1989–2019″『平成美術:うたかたと瓦礫(デブリ) 1989-2019』展.
The curator and art critic SAWARAGI Noi 椹木野衣 received a huge amount of bad critics; the local art scene didn’t approve his “cheap” manoeuvre.

Via OZAKI Tetsuya’s FB post, I wrote the following comment:
“Thx for sharing. I didn’t see this exhibition in person, but via the internet. The title and the picked up artists groups might be interesting in their art practices, however I don’t understand why on earth we should contextualise a certain religious time calendar. “Art of the Heisei Period” 平成美術 is for the non-initiate quite misleading. A truly fucked-up title. If he thinks the period after 1989 brought debris, see his time-line-wall of historical events, the contrary has to be said. The Fall of the Berlin Wall and the implementation of the Euro brought an era of prosperity and happiness to the world, including Japan. Next, why on earth do I miss several artists, who still are much more important and influential during this era? Picking up a certain number of “artist groups”, (obviously affiliated to a certain behind-the-scene relationship), plus, I don’t regard UKAWA Naohiro as a group, manifests how the intentional, irresponsible, curational practice backfired. Ignoring for example the influential Xijing Men, Kaikai Kiki artists group (not identical with the “Geisai-festival”), shows in what dilemma the curator put himself in. Last, to be over the top, he should have had exhibited works by artists groups like NITTEN 日展, INTEN 院展 and Hakujitsukai 白日会展.”
Tetsuya Ozaki:
“Hi Mario, thank you for your provocative comment. A few words: the relationship is not “behind-the-scene”, it is obvious.”

Finally, let’s turn the spot-light on our Japanese BIG LIAR, MURAKAMI Takashi 村上隆.

Japanese art worker MURAKAMI Takashi is NOT American but Japanese. Neither does he work in Tokyo and New York. His atelier is located in the Saitama Prefecture, where he is mostly living, sleeping and working. Check his Instagram Account.

Obviously, in this Kyoto-context, I don’t need to introduce his artistic practice, as my ART+CULTURE readers already had plenty of opportunities to get informed, see the links:

Art worker Murakami refused giving interviews for his Mori Art Museum Show (2015), and repeatedly emphasised that he will never do a show in Japan again.
He can be called a happy person, as he has a family with kids, is famous and a very rich artist and art collector (Yokohama show, 2015).
https://yokohama.art.museum/special/2015/murakamicollection/english.html

However, he treats most of his staff like slaves, and constantly complains about his personal misery on Instagram. But not anymore on Facebook or X. Check his IG. Metaphorically I can say, “every time he opens his mouth, he lies.” He plays the cool and pitiful Japanese artist who has no money.

Actually he is showing a discriminating behaviour towards the people of Kyoto, which he would not dare to try in Tokyo or Yokohama.
This inhuman, scandalous situation can be exemplarily seen now in front of the Kyoto City KYOCERA Museum of Art: “Takashi Murakami Mononoke Kyoto”. Yesterday, on the opening day, the 3rd, an immense long queue formed in front of the museum.
The first 50,000 visitors to the Murakami’s exhibition were given “collectible trading cards”, and many young people in the line had been asking for one. The card has already been resold for a high price on flea market // reseller’s apps. Most of these young people didn’t enter the museum. “Real” visitors said, the exhibition space was almost empty.

Is Takashi Murakami for resale purposes? Despite what he said, I promised him not to sell it 😌

There are things that money can’t buy. I don’t think I’ll be able to experience something like this twice 😇

[Complete explanation of Takashi Murakami Kyocera riot incident]

① Around 3 o’clock in the morning, a half-grey group suddenly appears, cutting in at the front.

② There was already nearly 500 people in line, so there was no way the people behind them would be satisfied, and the venue erupted in flames 🔥

③ The police arrived and tried to persuade them, but they didn’t respond.

④ The museum acknowledges the intervention.
And the group at the front went crazy 🤣 and in the end they were thrown off and left 👐

これ、どうやら転売ヤーの間ではごねれば郵送してくれそうと判断したようで京都の村上隆展に方向転換してるようだ。人少ない方が助かるから来ないのは別に構わんけど、この際もし郵送可になっても診断書必要とか後出しして転売ヤー殺して欲しい😇
Translated from Japanese by
It seems that resellers have decided that if they ask, they will send it by mail, so they have changed direction to the Takashi Murakami exhibition in Kyoto. I don’t mind if they don’t come because it would be better if there were fewer people, but even if it becomes possible to send them by mail, I would like them to require a medical certificate or send it out later and kill the resellers 😇

Art and money, or rather, Takashi Murakami feels nothing but “money.” I absolutely feel only “money”, and I don’t feel “art” at all.

今日からスタートの「村上隆 もののけ京都」楽しみに京セラ美術館に到着したのが16時過ぎ。外まですごい行列でまさかの受付終了。入場券持ってたんだけどそれでも並べず🥹
通常18時→20時まで延長するけどそれでも無理との事。
聞くとトレカの転売ヤーがかなりいたらしくて本当に見たい人が見れない😢

I arrived at the Kyocera Museum of Art just after 4pm to look forward to the “Takashi Murakami Mononoke Kyoto” show that started today. There was a huge line outside and the reception ended unexpectedly. I had an admission ticket, but I still couldn’t line up 🥹
Usually 18:00 → They will extend it until 20:00, but they say it is still not possible.
I heard that there were a lot of trading card resellers, so people who really wanted to see it couldn’t see it 😢

Above pics, links and texts from X are for the record and as confirmation that the Kyoto City KYOCERA Museum of Art did some bad management practice.
Art worker Murakami, who runs a company and is a rich person, says he has no money. Therein lies the main problem.
This exhibition has been planed long time ago and was constantly under severe curatorial control.
However, the exhibition is not installed with the works in question. Murakami could not fulfil the contract, ergo cheated the people of Kyoto and every foreign traveller, who likes to visit today this museum.

Murakami’s art practice that imitates other artists’ works. Full of plagiarism works, using AI (!!), to be seen also here in Kyoto.

What a shame for the Japanese art world!
パクリ作品、他のアーティスト作を真似ている村上隆のアート・プラクティス。
See:
https://art-culture.world/articles/takashi-murakami-kaikai-kiki-japanese-art-world/

In “非常に優れている企画展「Viva Video! 久保田成子展」@ MOT!”, KUBOTA Shigeko’s solo show at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo, I wrote, that I want to get the Japanese contemporary artists’ practices and results elevated, reaching higher standards.
See:
“私は日本現代アートをより良くする為に生きています。自分のアート実践とは別に、時間、エネルギー、知識、お金や肉体の力を無駄にしたくありません。久保田成子が存命であった当時に回顧展が実現できなかった事実は、日本の美術界の恥さらしだと言いたいです。心は怒っています。”
https://art-culture.world/articles/kubota-shigeko-museum-of-contemporary-art-tokyo-久保田成子/

However, art worker Murakami’s practice, using also AI, destroys the Japanese art world.
The exhibitions at the Kyoto City KYOCERA Museum of Art are of minor quality, something is dangerously going towards the wrong direction.
The General Manager, TAKAHASHI Shinya 高橋信也(京都市京セラ美術館事業企画推進室 ゼネラルマネージャー), whom I know from his time at the bookstore Nadiff, probably has to rethink the concept of this museum. Basically it’s not about money. Contemporary art is NOT related to commercialism. Mothers with babies shouldn’t freeze, for 8 hours, in front of the Kyoto City KYOCERA Museum of Art.

「村上隆 もののけ 京都」3日から京都市京セラ美術館で開催
02月02日 18時01分

伝統的な絵画の表現と、アニメや漫画などを結びつけた作品を発表し、世界的に活躍している村上隆さんの大規模な個展が、3日から京都市京セラ美術館で開かれるのを前に、関係者を招いて内覧会が行われました。

京都市左京区の京都市京セラ美術館で始まるのは、伝統的な絵画の表現と、アニメや漫画を結びつけたアート作品などで世界的に評価されている村上隆さんの個展で、2日は、関係者向けの内覧会が行われました。
会場には、今回のために制作された新作、160点を含む合わせて170点が展示されています。
新作の多くは、江戸時代に京都で活躍した絵師たちの代表作に込められたねらいや手法を読み取って、さらに独自に解釈し直して表現しているということです。
このうち、「風神図」と「雷神図」は、伝統的な構図を踏まえながら、アニメ化された独自のキャラクターで表現しています。
また、江戸時代の京都の様子を描いた「洛中洛外図 岩佐又兵衛 rip」は、寺社や無数の人物の中に、花をモチーフにした独自のキャラクターが登場したり金ぱくのどくろを重ねて雲を表現したりした大作です。
企画した京都市京セラ美術館の高橋信也ゼネラルマネージャーは「平安時代の大和絵が現代のアニメやコミックにつながっているという村上さんの考え方は、京都と必然的につながっていてこれまでにない村上さんの作品を見ていただけるはずです」と話していました。
「村上隆 もののけ 京都」展は3日から9月1日まで開かれます。
https://www3.nhk.or.jp/lnews/kyoto/20240202/2010019464.html

9時間待って入りました。会場内は大混雑だろうと思って入ったら、中は空いてました。カードが欲しいだけで作品に興味はない人ばかりです。
Translated from Japanese by
I waited for 9 hours to get in. I entered the venue thinking it would be crowded, but it was empty. There are people who just want the cards and are not interested in the work.

村上隆展、新作の《洛中洛外図 岩佐又兵衛 rip》(2023-24)が圧巻でした。
13mの大作で、かつての京都の街並みや人々のなかにキャラクターも。
もとになる洛中洛中図(舟木本)をAIを使って線描化、それを人の手で描き起こすという工程。
Translated from Japanese by
Takashi Murakami’s new work “Rakuchu Rakugai Zu Iwasa Matabei rip” (2023-24) was a masterpiece.
This is a 13m large-scale work that includes characters in the streets and people of Kyoto in the past.
The process of drawing the original Rakuchu Rakuchu Zu (Funaki book) using AI and drawing it by hand.

そして本展、村上さんの「言い訳」がまた別の作品になっているのも面白いポイント。作品の経緯、まだ未完成である説明などがオーディオコメンタリーのように吹き出しに描かれている。
言い訳と言いつつサービス精神満載。文脈を理解してほしいという思いや啓蒙的な要素も感じる。
Translated from Japanese by
Another interesting point in this exhibition is that Murakami’s “excuses” are yet another work. The history of the work and explanations of how it is still unfinished are written in speech bubbles like an audio commentary.
Although it is an excuse, it is full of service spirit. I feel that there is a desire for people to understand the context, and there is also an edifying element.
