The exhibition will combine a product-based historical and sociological examination of Hello Kitty, including rare and unique pieces from Sanrio’s archives, with an installation of mixed media works by artists demonstrating Hello Kitty’s influence on contemporary art. Christine Yano, author of Pink Globalization: Hello Kitty’s Trek Across the Pacific, will serve as curator for the retrospective component of the exhibition. Jamie Rivadeneira, founder and owner of pop culture-inspired boutique JapanLA, will curate the contemporary art component.
