Yayoi Kusama: My Eternal Soul

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.
Yayoi Kusama is one of those artists whose mythology often overshadows her work. Having done her time on the 1960s New York scene, where she was an indisputably huge influence on pop art giants including Andy Warhol, Kusama returned to Tokyo in the early 1970s, checked herself into a mental institution and has lived there willingly ever since. Now the National Art Center is putting her work in the spotlight: ‘My Eternal Soul’ consists mainly of large-scale paintings from the eponymous series the artist has been working on since 2009, in addition to the works that have made Kusama most famous, like her ‘Infinity Net’ paintings, phallic sculptures and, yes, those legendary red polka dots.
