Currently showing at our favorite nearby art gallery/Japanese-maid-themed-cafe/store, Royal T in Culver City, CA, is “I Can’t Feel My Face,” curated by New York artist KAWS. As the website says, “I Can’t Feel My Face shares its title with a painting by KAWS and is a centerpiece of the exhibition, which explores the theme of contemporary portraiture as a vehicle of inherent emotive expression.” The show features work from over 25 artists, including Carol Dunham, Misaki Kawai, Hideaki Kawashima, Ted Mineo, and Takashi Murakami.
