Tadanori Yokoo Recent Poster Works 1993-2005


I know no nothing of "anti-modernist aesthetic" or "Pop Art". All I know is that I finally got to see the display of the recent poster works of artist Tadanori Yokoo at the Japan Foundation on 131 Bloor Street West, 2nd floor . I can use two words to describe what I saw:

Way cool.

Sadly you have only 2 more weeks to see the showing. The Japan Foundation gallery is open Monday to Friday from 11:30am to 4:30pm. But if you can't get there during the day, be advised that the gallery is open until 7 pm on Thursdays (Dec 8th and 15th). I would recommend making two visits as there is alot to take in.
