 The first exhibition of Japanese artist Yoshitomo Nara, who joined the gallery in 2011, is on view at 534 West 25th Street from May 10 through June 29. The exhibition features new paintings, bronzes, and works on paper, some of which were recently included in the solo exhibition Yoshitomo Nara: a bit like you and me, organized by the Yokohama Museum of Art and subsequently shown at the Aomori Museum of Art and Contemporary Art Museum, Kumamoto.
  A catalogue with an essay by artist and musician David Byrne accompanies the show.. “When I look at Nara’s work, I see its roots in the ‘Kulture of Kute’ (the Japanese term is kawaii): the big eyes on the little kids,” writes Byrne. “On the surface, they’re pretty damn cute. But Nara has stepped outside that world in a big way. The kids and dogs in his pictures and bronzes are defiant, angry, annoyed, and pissed off. They have rebelled against their roots, and their big eyes are cold, slightly alien. Nothing is scarier than something that is the opposite of what it seems—a cute kid who is in fact a bad seed.”
