Zero and Yayoi Kusama

YAYOA KUSAMA MUSEUM | Tokyo | 5. März - 31. Mai 2020

„This exhibition introduces the ZERO movement and its works, which have not been widely presented in Japan yet, together with Kusama’s works and documentation from the 1960s. When she was based in New York in the 1960s, Kusama participated in group ZERO-related exhibitions many times, attracting attention within the European art scene. Yayoi Kusama, who pursues “Infinity”, has various similarities in her artistic expression with that of ZERO artists, such as the repetition of motifs and the pursuit of monochrome. It will trace the journey of avant-garde artists who overcame the wounds of war, initiating the possibility of a brand-new art through exploring two opposite poles, Zero and Infinity.“
