Now to 25 September – Yayoi Kusama’s Life is The Heart of a Rainbow
You should have already heard the buzz about Yayoi Kusama, the globally acclaimed Japanese artist that has captured hearts everywhere with her art pieces. First getting a sneak peek of her work at the National Gallery Singapore’s Children’s Biennale 2017, the Kusama craze continues with her full-fledged Life Is The Heart Of A Rainbow exhibit! Held from now to 3 September at National Gallery Singapore, the blockbuster exhibit showcases 120 artworks over Yayoi Kusama’s prolific career, with her trademark polka dots, infinity mirror rooms and pumpkins taking center stage. It’s pretty rare for an art exhibit in Singapore to garner this much nationwide craze and hype, but we promise it’s totally worth it – prepare to delve into “70 years of artistic obsession”!
