TAKASHI MURAKAMI

Internationally prolific contemporary artist Takashi Murakami returns to the ComplexCon host committee to once again design the event’s brand identity and lend his oversight to the overall design and aesthetic experience. Murakami’s renowned KaiKai Kiki art production company will curate a space within the Art Zone during ComplexCon and collaborate with artists and gallerists. Over the past year, ComplexCon has deepened its relationship with Murakami, partnering with the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago for the artist’s upcoming solo show “Takashi Murakami: The Octopus Eats Its Own Leg,” in Chicago. ComplexCon will host a pop-up gift shop featuring exclusive limited-edition merchandise.
