Little Boy


Japan Society

2005: New York, New York


Little Boy: The Art of Japan's Exploding Subculture presented iconic images of Japanese popular culture juxtaposed with major works by contemporary Japanese artists in an explor-ation of otaku culture -- the subculture of “geeks” or “pop culture fanatics”. Curated by celebrated artist Takashi Murakami , Little Boy featured paintings, sculpture, and instal-lations by contemporary Japanese Neo-Pop artists whose work draws from otaku culture.
The show featured some 1,500 objects including over 600 original drawings and cells by Japanese anime and manga artists, 320 vintage toys, and hundreds of merchandise items, and animation.
