In an unprecedented move in American museum history, Japanese pop-artist Takashi Murakami’s upcoming “Ã‚Â© Murakami” exhibition will have a mini pop-up Louis Vuitton store in the exhibition. Unlike conventional retail spaces in museum environments that operate outside the showing area, the pop-up store will actual be operated right in the middle of the exhibition. Among the items available for sale are special pieces created for this MoCA (Museum of Contemporary Art Los Angeles) show such as leather goods and handbags. The art derived reasoning behind this concept is best described as a tie-in with the commercialization of Murakami’s art alongside the breaking of barriers between low and high art (which has been Murakami’s intentions all along). The store itself will operate as it’s own entity and MoCA will not receive any proceeds from the sale of LV goods. The show runs from October 29th to February 11th.
