The largest retrospective of the artist in Asia outside Japan.

Exhibition

Featuring more than 200 works, including paintings, drawings, sculptures, installations, and archival material, this exhibition surveys Kusama’s career from the earliest drawings she made as a teenager during World War II to her most recent immersive art pieces. Organised chronologically and thematically, the retrospective guides visitors through Kusama’s career-long creative pouring divided into major themes: Infinity, Accumulation, Radical Connectivity, Biocosmic​, Death, and Force of Life.

The exhibition identity draws upon the sense of vitality present in Kusama’s biomorphic works and signature dots. At the core of the visual identity are a series of custom organic orbs used as holding shapes for wall text and imagery. Each holding shape is customised depending on content and allowable space. Similar to the fluid forms in Kusama’s work, the orbs travel across the exhibition and “overgrows” its surrounding environment, becoming familiar motifs as visitors walk through the exhibit.
