This is the first major survey of her work in Southeast Asia, focusing on the immersive and expansive nature of her practice. The exhibition invites audiences to discover Kusama’s creative vision through paintings, sculptures, videos and installations from the 1950s to the present, including works never shown before. Step into her infinity mirror rooms, explore the development of her intricate nets, dots and pumpkin motifs, and encounter new paintings in which the artist continues to push artistic boundaries.
The show examines Kusama’s works creating resonance across geographical boundaries, and how she defied societal and personal challenges to create an impact in the art world.
YAYOI KUSAMA: Life is the Heart of a Rainbow is a collaboration between National Gallery Singapore and Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art, Brisbane, Australia. The exhibition will travel to QAGOMA after its showing at the Gallery.
