The Victoria Miro Gallery will present a new exhibition featuring the work of Yayoi Kusama from the 25th May to the 30th July.
Taking place across all the gallery’s locations and waterside garden, this new exhibition of the artist’s work will feature new paintings, pumpkin sculptures and mirror rooms – all made especially for this display.
It is the most extensive exhibition relating to the artist at the gallery to date, as well as being the first time that the mirror rooms have gone on view in London since Kusama’s major retrospective at Tate Modern in 2012.
For the exhibition at the Wharf Road Galleries, Kusama has created three mirror rooms: Pumpkin’s Infinity Mirrored Room, Chandelier of Grief and Where the Lights in My Heart Go, all of which place the viewer within a universe of varying proliferating reflections.
Meanwhile the Victoria Miro Mayfair will display new paintings by the artist from the ongoing series My Eternal Soul, which Kusama began in 2009.
Yayoi Kusama was recently named the world’s most popular artist by various news outlets, based on figures reported by The Art Newspaper for global museum attendance.
Her work is held in museum collections all over the world including: Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, D.C.; Los Angeles County Museum of Art; The Museum of Modern Art, New York; National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo; Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam and Tate Gallery, London.
Yayoi Kusama’s work will appear at both Victoria Miro galleries from the 25th May to the 30th July.
