Get Your Nara On! Even On Your iPhone!
The first major New York exhibition of the Japanese artist, Yoshimoto Nara, opened at Asia Society this past September with an expansive three part installation, Nobody’s Fool. At the forefront of Neo Pop art, Yoshimoto Nara’s exhibition spans over one hundred works from 1980’s to his most recent paintings, drawings, sculptures and large-scale installations. His pop culture attitude and manga characters translate “the sense of isolation in a hyper-networked society.”
As Asia Society’s motive towards enhancing the visual experience, from the curator’s video and onwards to the iPhone app, these virtual elements have truly manifested the Nara dynamics, but translates the tech advancements of moving alongside the traditional ideals of the museum-gallery visit. Whether you are in Japan, London or New York, this new feature of the iPhone app is beyond a mobile tour but a valuable accessory for art education and behind the scenes features into the artist’s work. A great museum souvenir for only $2.99!Check out Asia Society’s new Yoshimoto Nara: Nobody’s Fool app on iTunes or their website http://www.asiasociety.org/yoshitomonara.
