The Matsumoto City Museum of Art is currently holding a special exhibition entitled All About My Love, a collection of 180 paintings and installations by the internationally renowned artist Yayoi Kusama. Featuring many never-before-seen pieces from her latest series, “My Eternal Soul,” as well as dazzling infinite-mirror installations, the exhibition is sure to awe those seeking to take a peek into her psychedelic world.
About the Artist
Yayoi Kusama was born in Matsumoto City in 1929. Plagued by hallucinations from a young age, she painted the hallucinations she saw as a form of a self-therapy. She moved to New York City at the age of 28, where she became an influential member of the avant-garde art movement, producing paintings, sculptures, performances, installations and more. She eventually returned to Japan in 1973 and continued her prolific work in Tokyo. Her mesmerizing patterns, infinite mirror installations, and thought-provoking performances have made Yayoi Kusama an international sensation, and she was named one of the world’s 100 most influential people by Time Magazine in 2016. To this day, she continues to produce new work at an astonishing rate.
