Today, at a certain location in NY, I will hold a talk show and book signing with my mentor and eminent Japanese art historian Professor Nobuo Tsuji. The talk is based on the book I co-authored with the Professor: Battle Royale! Japanese Art History. An exhibition just opened at the MFA Boston titled "Takashi Murakami: Lineage of Eccentrics: A Collaboration with Nobuo Tsuji and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston” @mfaboston and both Professor Tsuji, who is 85, and I are visiting the US for the occasion.
The book was designed by Takaya Goto, @gotogram my great friend ever since I first started living in NY 25 years ago! It was translated by Yuko Sakata, @tabi_the_fat who is always helping Kaikai Kiki projects, and Christopher Stephens, Professor Tsuji’s second-generation student. I’m so very happy that this book was made! We at Kaikai Kiki are working on making the book available on Amazon in North America. Please look out for it!

There was a VIP opening last night at the MFA Boston. Thank you to all involved and all who came! The night before, due to the jet lag I only slept for 2 hours and then I had back to back events all day long. The day ended with a long photo session with the Late Nites party guests, and I almost went crazy going all out. When I got back to the hotel, I was suddenly drenched in cold sweat and had a horrible headache! The sweat kept coming and I didn’t know what to do. This afternoon I have a talk event back at the MFA but I’m recovering slowly; now I have my go-to, cold-pack patches pasted all over my face to combat the headache. I’m really overworked this year.
