Recommended by Katie Kurtz

This show features hyperrealist illustrator Shohei Otomo’s contemporary take on kakejiku—traditional Japanese hanging scrolls made of delicate paper and kimono fabric. With some inherited talent and an eye toward the dystopian from his dad, Katsuhiro Otomo (creator and director of Akira), Shohei Otomo’s work has a Man in the High Castle vibe. Japanese and American West Coast cultures mash into Dia de los Muertos geishas and cops smoking pot from a crushed Asahi beer can. Local hiphop act 52Kings and Japanese dub/electronic artist Cutsigh will perform at the opening reception.
