An exhibition featuring the works of one of the leading artists of our time has opened in Singapore – and you can take a piece of her work home with you, after the show.
13 June 2017
At 88-years-old, Yayoi Kusama is seen as the most important living artist to come out of Japan. A leading voice of the avant-garde, her works are largely conceptual and display attributes of feminism, surrealism, Art Brut, pop art and abstract expressionism. They are easily identifiable by their psychedelic colours, repetition and pattern, and her trademark polka dots and net, pumpkins, and infinity mirror rooms have become part of pop culture.
Yayoi inspires a kind of fan mania that’s rare for today’s contemporary art scene, and with National Gallery having just opened the first major exhibition of her work in Southeast Asia, well, you can expect some real buzz!
Featuring over 120 works across a variety of media, YAYOI KUSAMA: Life is the Heart of a Rainbow invites visitors to explore an extraordinary artistic journey across seven decades.
In conjunction with this significant exhibition, Gallery & Co. have received the rights to release an extensive range of products featuring Yayoi’s artworks. Some of these are exclusive to Gallery & Co. and cannot be found anywhere else in the world.
Objects include an umbrella, enamel pins, tote bags, pouches, homeware and more, all embellished with the artist’s iconic polka dots, whimsical creations, and latest artwork – which means you can now actually bring a piece of Yoyoi Kusama’s works home with you.
The collection is available at the Gallery & Co. online and physical store.
The exhibition Life in the Heart of Rainbow will be held from 9 June to 3 September 2017 at the National Gallery, City Hall Wing, Level 3, Singtel Special Exhibition Gallery.
