ARTIST YAYOI KUSAMA TO STAGE A MAJOR EXHIBITION IN LONDON
At the mesmerizing age of 89, contemporary Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama is planning an impactful new exhibition in London’s Victoria Miro gallery. This versatile, multi-talented woman is considered one of Japan’s most influential artists, whose work embraces sculpture and installation, but also painting, performance, film, fashion, poetry, fiction, and other arts.
Her work is based on conceptual art and shows some attributes of feminism, minimalismand surrealism. The exhibit will showcase revised versions of some of Kusama’s signature works — including a specially designed Infinity Mirror Room.
It will consist of a large mirrored room featuring polka-dot covered paper lanterns hanging from the ceiling. Other works include new colorful pumpkin sculptures, bronze flowers in the gallery’s garden and paintings from Kusama’s My Eternal Soul series. The exhibition will run from October 3 through December 21 this year.
