08:00 PM - 11:00 pm
In celebration of Takashi Murakami: Stepping on the Tail of a Rainbow, self-described Japanophile and two-time Grammy-winning musician Thundercat will play a live set exemplifying the unexpected and genre-defying nature he has become known for. Sharing the bill will be a performance by Ginger Root, who combines influences of Japanese City Pop and the days of Stax and Philly Soul, for a fresh take on the ever-evolving Bedroom Pop scene.
Throughout the evening, visit our first floor galleries to view Takashi Murakami, the artist’s first solo exhibition at The Broad. The exhibition, which includes all of Murakami’s works in the Broad collection and key loans, features works spanning sculpture, painting, wallpaper, and immersive installations and explores subject matter such as globalization, postwar Japan, pop culture, and religious iconography.
