Yayoi Kusama @modernamuseet Stockholm
Tonight we enjoyed the fantastic opening of the new exhibition, Yayoi Kusama at Moderna Museet in Stockholm.
Yayoi Kusama was born in 1929 and is one of the most influential artists of today. In 2012 she made a collaboration with Luis Vuitton where her dots were painted all over bags, prints on clothing etc. It was all about the dot.
Kusama enrolled herself in a mental institution because she felt she was going insane. Her only help in keeping her sanity came through her art.
“From outer space all human-beings, stars, earth and the sun are just dots. A dot is never alone but always in accumulation. I want everybody to be dots that stand up and sing out loudly about love peace and humanity.”
The exhibition starts 11/06-2016 and continues to 11/09-2016 at Moderna Museet in Stockholm.
