Park Avenue Armory, in collaboration with Asia Society Museum, will host an open studio with Japanese artist Yoshitomo Nara with free admission to the public starting today, August 23 through Friday, August 27.

In the Armory's Wade Thompson Drill Hall, Nara will reconstruct the large-scale installation Home, which will include a display of his drawings and other objects. Nara will also establish a temporary studio adjacent to the drill hall, to create new drawings and other works while the team works on the reconstruction. The Armory will open its doors from 4:00 until 7:00 pm so the general public can witness the creative process of the artist and his team. 

Nara (born 1959), is one of the most influential and internationally renowned Neo-Pop artists working today. His exhibition will comprise 20 years' worth of paintings, sculpture, drawings, and large-scale installations.
