Yayoi Kusama with idiosyncratic pieces from the 1950s to present day

With idiosyncratic pieces from the 1950s to present day this new exhibition of work by Yayoi Kusama surveys the Japanese artist’s practice, its consistencies and evolutions. From multiples to treasured motifs, engagement with the body and her special relationship to space, viewers will encounter early painting experiments up to the most recently produced My Eternal Soul series (2009-ongoing) and all that lies in between. Assemblage work, performance, ‘net’ paintings and the iconic (and much photographed) infinity rooms and Narcissus Garden (1966-2002) will be on show in this collaboration between the National Gallery Singapore and Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art, Brisbane until 11 February 2018.
