About Yayoi Kusama :
Well known for her use of dense patterns of polka dots and nets, as well as her intense, large-scale environments, Yayoi Kusama’s art encompasses an astonishing variety of media, including painting, drawing, sculpture, film, performance, and immersive installation. Born in Matsumoto, Japan in 1929, Kusama came to the U.S. in 1957 and quickly found herself at the epicenter of the 1960s avant-garde art world in New York. After achieving fame and notoriety with groundbreaking exhibitions, art happenings, and events, she returned to her native country in 1973 and is now Japan’s most prominent contemporary artist. This retrospective features works across many mediums from the full chronology of Kusama’s career.
New event this month, with the man from New York, Todd James, better known by his graffiti tag REAS. This is his first japanese solo exhibition.
The exhibition opens June 2 and runs through July 1.
