The internationally acclaimed Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama will be exhibiting major new works at London’s Victoria Miro Gallery from May 25. This exhibition will be the largest UK show since the retrospective at the Tate Modern in 2012. It will include new paintings, pumpkin sculptures as well as more of the artist’s infamous mirror rooms.
Variously crowned most popular artist in the world, second most expensive living female artist, and the sole visual artist to make it onto TIME’s 100 Most Influential People, Kusama’s work boasts global appeal. The international phenomenon has had an unbelievable decade at auction with collectors from around the world hoping to get their hands on one of her pieces.
This new show is her most extensive at Victoria Miro yet and will feature several of her celebrated mirror rooms, which place the viewer within a cosmos of varying infinite reflections.
