This event has ended.

Yayoi Kusama is one of modern Japan’s most recognizable figures and an avant-garde artist of international acclaim who was named one of ‘The 100 Most Influential People’ (TIME magazine, USA / 2016), the only Japanese featured in the prestigious magazine, and ‘The Most Popular Artist in The World’ featured by (The Art Newspaper ,UK / 2014). She was an influential figure in the postwar New York art scene, staging provocative events and exhibiting works such as her “Infinity Nets”, hallucinatory paintings of loops and dots. Throughout her career, Kusama has developed extensive activities ranging from paintings, sculptures, installations, images and even novels. Since her return to Japan in the 1970s, Kusama’s work has continued to appeal to the imagination and the senses, including dizzying walk-in installations, public sculptures, and the “Dots Obsessions” paintings. This exhibition focuses on the works from the large painting series ‘My Eternal Soul,’ which Kusama has been vigorously working on since 2009. Visitors will also be able to trace the artist’s career through a large display of her work including unreleased and rare artwork. In total there will be approximately 270 art works on display.
