World renowned Japanese artist, Yayoi Kusama is returning to Australian shores with her latest exhibition.

Brisbane’s Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA) will offer audiences an overview of Kusama’s vast body of work. The exhibition entitled: ‘Life is the Heart of a Rainbow’ includes early painterly experiments, a multi-decade presentation of her celebrated ‘net’ paintings, performance, soft-sculpture, assemblage, the iconic ‘infinity rooms’ and large-scale installations of her later career. It culminates in an encompassing presentation of Kusama’s most recent paintings from the visually arresting ‘My Eternal Soul’ series (2009 – ongoing).

The last time Kusama graced Australian shores was back in 2009 during her Sydney exhibition. She has gained world recognition and acclaim from a career spaning over 60 years, with works in surrealism, pop, minimalism and psychedelia. Earlier this year, she opened her own museum in the Shinjuku neighbourhood of Tokyo.

The Yayoi Kusama: Life is the Heart of a Rainbow exhibition is showing at GOMA from Saturday November 4, 2017 through to Sunday February 11, 2018. Entry is free.
