EXHIBITION // YAYOI KUSAMA – LIFE IS THE HEART OF A RAINBOW
Now thru to Sunday February 4 // GOMA, Stanley Pl, South Bank

Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama is an international phenomenon. Her beguiling creations and unique perspective, irrepressibly expressed across a career of more than 60 years, have made her a pre-eminent figure in 21st century contemporary art. A focused survey of Kusama’s vast body of work since the 1950s, ‘Life is the Heart of a Rainbow’ explores her key motifs, her engagement with the body, and her conception of space. During the exhibition, the Children’s Art Centre at GOMA hosts the immersive interactive The obliteration room (2002 – ongoing), a collaboration between the artist and QAGOMA which debuted at ‘The 4th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art’ and has since been experienced by more than five million people at venues around the world.
