Yayoi Kusama is bringing her exhibition to Australia, starting from next week.

Brisbane's Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA) will offer audiences an overview of Kusama’s vast body of work from the last few decades. This will include the artist’s famed 'infinity rooms', plus her ‘obliteration room’, mirrored cube installations and 24 paintings from the My Eternal Soul series.

The last time Kusama graced Australian shores was during her Sydney exhibition way back in 2009, leaving us in the lurch for eight whole years. She has gained world recognition from a career spanning 60 years, with works in surrealism, pop, minimalism and psychedelia.
Put simply, Kusama is an icon, and you won't want to miss this event.
 
The Yayoi Kusama: Life is the Heart of a Rainbow exhibition is showing at GOMA from Saturday November 4 through to Sunday February 11, 2018. Entry is free.
