M+ Museum is celebrating its first anniversary with a six-month long special exhibition of Yayoi Kusama: 1945 to Now, offering visitors a rare chance to explore the Japanese artist’s unique artworks. The show will run from 12 November 2022 to 14 May 2023.
Well-known for her obsession with polka dots and mirrors, 93-year-old Kusama’s art encompasses an astonishing variety of media, including painting, installation, sculpture, drawing, collage, and moving image. The special exhibition, described as “the largest retrospective of Kusama in Asia outside Japan”, will feature more than 200 works from major collections from museums and private collections in Asia, Europe, and the United States, the M+ Collection, as well as from the artist’s own collection.
“We are proud to present Yayoi Kusama: 1945 to Now to our audiences, as the internationally acclaimed artist’s cross-disciplinary and global art practice resonates with the essence of what M+ offers. We look forward to another splendid year ahead with a terrific line-up of exhibitions and programs,” says Suhanya Raffel, Museum Director of M+.
