Takashi Murakami in Versailles

Takashi Murakami, the "Japanese Warhol" will exhibit his work in the Chateau de Versailles for a show that will run from September 14 to December 12. The artist will follow in the footsteps of Jeff Koons, who displayed his sculpture pieces in 2008, and Xavier Veilhan in 2009. It will be Murakami first retrospective in France.
“For a Japanese like me, the Château de Versailles is one of the greatest symbols of Western history. It is the emblem of an ambition for elegance, sophistication and art that most of us can only dream of.
Of course, we are aware that the spark that set fire to the powder of the Revolution came directly from the centre of the building.
