A collaborative art installation at the Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art (@QAGGoMA) which is the work of Japanese artist Yayoi Kasumana. The exhibition Yayoi Kusama: Look Now, See Forever features the stunning ‘Obliteration Room’
Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama is one of the most significant and influential artists working today. The Gallery has had a long working relationship with Kusama, and her installations Soul under the moon 2002 and Narcissus garden 1966/2002 are among the most popular works in the Gallery’s Collection.
‘Look Now, See Forever’ transforms the dramatic spaces of the Gallery of Modern Art with a series of spectacular immersive rooms, featuring new sculptures and paintings as well as film projection and installation. Showcasing Kusama’s innovative work with colour, form, space and perception, this exhibition shows a senior artist at the peak of her powers.
Revel in the vibrant and playful works of Kusama by adding colourful dots to The obliteration room, a popular interactive installation first commissioned by the Queensland Art Gallery for Kids’ APT in 2002.
