Meet a Japanese Artist Who Makes Installations That You Have to See to Believe
This Thursday, get swept away by the psychedelic works of Yayoi Kusama. The High Museum of Art is proud to present the most comprehensive exhibition by the Japanese artist—one of the most influential creators of the 20th century—to tour North America in over twenty years. Don’t miss it on December 13th starting at 10:00 a.m.
Born in 1929, Yayoi Kusama grew up near her family’s plant nursery in Matsumoto, Japan. At nineteen, following World War II, she moved to Kyoto to study a traditional Japanese style of painting known as Nihonga that is typically made on washi paper or silk. During this period, Kusama began experimenting with abstraction, though it was not until her arrival in the United States in 1957 that she embraced it fully and began the phase that would characterize her mature work.
Organized by the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, this show will take visitors on an expansive journey across six decades of Kusama’s creative output and will explore the development of the artist’s Infinity Mirror Rooms, her iconic, kaleidoscopic environments.
The exhibition will present six of these rooms as well as sculptures, paintings, works on paper, film excerpts, archival ephemera, and additional large-scale installations that span the early 1950s to the present day. Also on view will be numerous new works by the 89-year-old artist, who remains active in her Tokyo studio.
Daily tickets are available for purchase. Please note that due to the exhibit’s popularity, approximately 100 tickets will be sold onsite each day. Tickets are valid on the date of purchase only and are dispensed on a first-come, first-serve basis. A maximum of two tickets will be sold per person.
