2020 has been a wild year, and Tadanori Yokoo's State of Emergency exhibition at the Yokoo Tadanori Museum of Contemporary Art encapsulates this. As one of the country's most successful and internationally recognized graphic designers and artists, he has often been referred to as 'The Andy Warhol of Japan' because of his unique, reality-bending style.

The works in the State of Emergency exhibition will have a crisis theme, with the lines between truth and fiction being blurred. Adult admission to the event is 700 yen.
