Downtown Los Angeles’ Corey Helford Gallery is excited to announce their next big bash, the Hello Kitty® 45th Anniversary Group Show (in partnership with Sanrio®, parent company of Hello Kitty), kicking off Saturday, June 29 in the Main Gallery. Hello Kitty has been a symbol of friendship and kindness for 45 years, with a fan base that spans multiple generations. This special group exhibition, featuring 100 artists from all over the globe, examines the world of Hello Kitty and her influence on popular culture.
Created in 1974 to inspire happiness, Hello Kitty has grown to embody the values of Japanese cultures through showing kindness, respect and the true meaning of friendship. Over the years, she has captured the imagination of people around the world and today appears on a broad range of products and experiences that appeal to her legions of fans and is the subject of countless brand collaborations and artistic explorations.
The artists featured in this exhibition have re-interpreted the iconic image of Hello Kitty and her friends in their own aesthetic through a wide variety of mediums including painting, sculpture and animation. The launch event on June 29 is open to the public and to Hello Kitty fans of all ages. Attendees will enjoy special surprises on opening night including available prints of select 45th anniversary artwork and appearances by Hello Kitty.
