About the exhibition
Yayoi Kusama is one of the world’s most influential artists, and has played a crucial role in key art movements of the 20th and 21st centuries. Known for her iconic dots, nets, pumpkins and infinity rooms, her art has captivated millions all over the world.
The first major survey of her work in Southeast Asia, this exhibition focuses on the immersive and expansive nature of her practice. Featuring over 120 works across media, YAYOI KUSAMA: Life is the Heart of a Rainbow offers an unprecedented opportunity to explore an extraordinary artistic journey across seven decades.
Beginning with paintings from the 1950s, the exhibition traces the development of her key motifs and exploration of colour, form and space. Along the way, it highlights her forays into sculpture, collage, performance and video, before culminating in a series of spectacular installations and large-scale paintings that transform our galleries and public spaces.
This exhibition spans 4 galleries (A, B, C, H) and takes roughly 2 hours to complete.
