Tokyo to infinity and beyond

Yayoi Kusama gets her own museum

If you don’t know the name Yayoi Kusama, you’ve certainly seen her work: the Japanese artist is known for her obsession with polka dots, psychedelic pumpkins and infinity rooms. In October, the 88-year-old artist will open her own museum in Tokyo. It’ll be located in a five-storey building in the Shinjuku neighbourhood. One floor will house her popular infinity rooms and other installations; there will be two rotating exhibits a year. The inaugural show Creation is a Solitary Pursuit, Love is What Brings You Closer to Art will run until February 25 and feature a series of paintings titled My Eternal Soul. Timed tickets will be priced at 1000 yen, about $11.50. Kusama’s touring world show, Infinity Mirrors, kicked off in Washington, DC this past February; it’ll stop at the Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto next spring. yayoikusamamuseum.jp.
