"Walk On, Works by Yoshitomo Nara"
2000-03-18 until 2000-06-25
Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago
Chicago, IL, USA United States of America

Japanese artist Yoshitomo Nara will present a startling large-scale sculptural installation created especially for the MCA, as well as a selection of new drawings and a recent painting. The sculptural work, titled The Little Pilgrims (Night Walking), is comprised of fifty fiberglass sculptures of stylized children clad in brightly painted costumes.

Culled from his menagerie of imaginary characters, these three-foot tall sleepwalkers have a gauze-like cloth surface. Visitors entering the museum will encounter a mass of three-dimensional characters swarming the walls - a strange yet enchanting, surreal vision. Born in Aomori, Japan, in 1959, and currently living and working in Cologne, Germany, and Nagoya, Japan, Nara is part of a generation of young Japanese artists whose works are informed by Japanese popular culture, primarily manga (comics) and television animation. Recently his work has been included in such group exhibitions as Art/Domestic: Temperature of the Time at the Setagaya Museum of Art, Tokyo, 1999, and The Manga Age at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo, in 1998.

This exhibition is curated by Associate Curator Staci Boris.
