Explore the exhibition “Takashi Murakami: Lineage of Eccentrics: A Collaboration with Nobuo Tsuji and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston” with curator Anne Nishimura Morse. The term “lineage of eccentrics,”  was coined by noted art historian Professor Nobuo Tsuji to describe outlier Japanese artists whose “lineage” is not a conventional master-disciple relationship, but one marked by a certain expressionist bent along with bizarre image-making. Discover through the exhibition, how contemporary artist Takashi Murakami sees his place in that lineage.

Anne Nishimura Morse, William and Helen Pounds Senior Curator of Japanese Art
