notes

Property from a Private West Coast Collection

“We should rediscover art that exists in what we think of as subculture. It’s strong and real anywhere you bring it because it’s directly born of the everyday folks [minshu] rather than of tradition, and related to their everyday life” (Y. Nara, quoted in M. Chiu and M. Tezuka, Yoshimoto Nara: Nobody’s Fool, exh. cat., Asia Society Museum, New York, 9 September 2010-2 January 2011, p. 22).
