Timothy Curtis, who graced the cover of our April 2017 issue, is set to open a solo show, "Laugh Now, Laugh Later: Painted Drawings," at Takashi Murakami's gallery, Hidari Zingaro, in Tokyo from Thursday November 23—December 5, 2017.

 What makes this show even more special for us at Juxtapoz is that Takashi Murakami noted in the show's press release that he learned of Tim's work through our Instagram! Takashi wrote, "Kaikai Kiki will be holding a solo exhibition by Timothy Curtis at our Hidari Zingaro space in Nakano, Tokyo. I first saw his artwork through @Juxtapozmag’s introduction page on Instagram. Following that I visited his page @timothy.curtis, and then I went to meet him at his studio in NY and we started talking about an exhibition. Our conversation went quite swimmingly as did our p lans and now we are able to do this exhibition. Nakano’s galleries character is centered on exhibitions focused on street art, graffiti, alternative artists, and written works. This this time round we intend on having Timothy bringing the heart of NY to Tokyo! Please look forward to it!"

We will be in Japan to cover the opening, so watch our Instagram for updates!
