Last weekend I went with a few friends to see Takashi Murakami’s “The Octopus Eats Its Own Legs” exhibit at The Modern in Fort Worth, Texas. Murakami is a Japanese artist whose work you probably recognize – he designed Kanye West’s Graduation album and did several collaborations with Louis Vuitton. I love the work he did with Louis Vuitton so I definitely wanted to check it out!
The Modern is located in Fort Worth, Texas, not far off the I-30. We went on a Sunday and the line was ridiculously long! I found out later that they offer half-price tickets on Sundays and free admission on Fridays. I would say 1.5 – 2 hours is enough time to get through the exhibit. I personally really loved this exhibit, his art is so colorful and there’s so much detail in every piece it kind of boggles my mind! It’s definitely something you should see in person. Honestly, I never read super long commentaries so I’ll just let the pictures speak for themselves. 🙂
This room seriously made me so happy!

Wow – such brilliance in the photographs showcasing an great exhibition.
Oh my goodness, I love all the color! My roommate is an artist and his style is similar. He would have loved to see this exhibit! We are also in Texas but much further south, sadly!
That’s so cool your roomie is an artist! I think the exhibit is up until September, so if you guys ever make it up here! lol
Gorgeous photos! Looks like such an amazing exhibit. Thank you for sharing!
OMG this looks amazing! He had an exhibit in Seattle last year or two years ago and the line was too long for our family. Glad you got to see this and I wonder if it’s heading up our way!
The line was ridiculously long at The Modern but my friends got memberships at the museum so we skipped the line! His work is seriously amazing, I hope he comes back to Seattle!
This looks incredible! Quite jealous of the experience. If I get to go to Fort Worth, I will have this on my list of places to visit!
This is lovely! Murakami is such an interesting artist; I love the energy in his work!
There is a lot of really col exhibits there! I would really love to go check this out sometime!
