Contemporary artist Takashi Murakami reveals how his vision is richly inflected by a dynamic conversation with the historic past, framed by a creative dialogue with a noted art historian and masterpieces from the MFA’s Japanese collection. 

Moderated by Anne Nishimura Morse, William and Helen Pounds Senior Curator of Japanese Art

Ticket holders may enter “Takashi Murakami: Lineage of Eccentrics” from 11am-2pm prior to the lecture with proof of ticket purchase.
