Jerry Saltz, New York art critic comments on Takashi Murakami retrospective at Brooklyn Museum. Since Murakami never shows in Japan it's worth watching the video to see few highlights of the exhibition which was originally curated for MOCA. A 90-piece multimedia show of whole Murakami brand. The Economist claims that even Andy Warhol did not go so far to build the shop in the center of the exhibition, where visitors can buy LV handbag, an essential accesory of each Japanese chic, with Murakami playful design. Being good in business is the most fascinating kind of art Andy Warhol once said. Isn't Murakami deliberately called Japanese Warhol?
