From June 10, 2017, you can catch Yayoi Kusama’s first retrospective in South-East Asia at the National Gallery Singapore
From June 10, 2017, the National Gallery Singapore will showcase Yayoi Kusama’s body of work in “Yayoi Kusama: Life is the Heart of a Rainbow”. The retrospective is her first in South-East Asia, and will feature over 100 paintings, sculptures, walk-in installations and videos spanning her 70-year career.
The avant-garde Japanese artist — known for hypnotic work fueled by an obsession with dots, pumpkins, nets and mirrors (as in her famous “Infinity Mirrors” series; pictured) — moved to the United States in 1957 and went on to become a significant figure in the 1960s New York art scene. Her eccentric style helped usher in the Pop Art movement, influencing the likes of Andy Warhol.
