The Cycle of Arhat opens Thursday, July 24, an exhibition by Takashi Murakami. The Cycle of Arhats will be hosted in the exhibition hall of the Caryatids of the Royal Palace.

It is an exhibition curated by Francesco Bonami, celebrating the sculptor and painter born in Tokyo in 1962 and described by Time magazine in 2008 as “the most influential representative of contemporary Japanese culture.”

The exhibition of Takashi Murakami focuses, as the title suggests,on the cycle of Arhat, built in 2014, and already exhibited with great success in the most important galleries in the world. Upon completion of this cycle works is the first live-action feature film from director Takashi Murakami, Jellyfish Eyes.
