YAYOI KUSAMA exhibition in Roppongi
Overview about Yayoi Kusama's last exhibition at The National Art Center, Tokyo
Since her debut, she has been enormously productive in terms of experimenting with different forms of artwork including paintings, collages, sculptures, environmental installations, novels and poetry. In recent years, her exhibitions toured various countries around Europe, Latin America, and Asia, receiving worldwide acclaim. To say she is the most important artist in Japan is not an overstatement.

The exhibition also presents a retrospective view, through 80 works that range from her earliest drawings to the present. These are lent from a number of collections. In all, over 270 works selected from Kusama’s more than 70-year prolific career are on display.
