Turner in Tokyo
Edited by Annie Block -- Interior Design, 3/1/2008 12:00:00 AM
If it weren't for the Turner Prize, Damien Hirst and Anish Kapoor might not be household names—and Tokyo's Mori Art Museum might not have such a crowd-pleaser coming up. As part of a yearlong U.K.-Japan cultural exchange, “History in the Making: A Retrospective of the Turner Prize” is running at the Mori from April 26 to July 13. (A similar show just closed at London's Tate Britain.) Look out for an abstract oil on canvas by the very first recipient, Malcolm Morley (1984), a mixed-media piece by Chris Ofili (1998), and a socially conscious film by Mark Wallinger (2007).
