About

Yayoi Kusama was born in 1929 in Matsumoto, Japan and lives and works in Tokyo. Her work gained widespread recognition in the late 1980s after a number of international solo exhibitions. She represented Japan in 1993 at the 45th Venice Biennale to much critical acclaim. A large-scale and well-received retrospective traveled from 2011 to 2012 to the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, Madrid; Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; Tate Modern, London; and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York. Kusama's work is currently the subject of two major international museum exhibitions. Yayoi Kusama: A Dream I Dreamed is a solo exhibition of over 100 recent works traveling through Asia, which was first displayed at the Daegu Art Museum in Korea, followed by the Museum of Contemporary Art Shanghai and the Seoul Arts Center. Yayoi Kusama: Infinite Obsession tours Central and South America throughout 2015.
