Yayoi Kusama: LOVE IS CALLING
On view through February 11, 2024
Pérez Art Museum Miami
An icon of contemporary art, Yayoi Kusama (b. 1929, Matsumoto, Japan) has interwoven ideas of Pop art, Minimalism, and psychedelia throughout her paintings, performances, room-size presentations, outdoor sculptural installations, literary works, films, designs, and architectural interventions.
“LOVE IS CALLING” is the largest and the most immersive and kaleidoscopic of the artist’s “Infinity Mirror Rooms.” Representing the culmination of her artistic achievements, it exemplifies the breadth of her visual vocabulary—from the signature polka dots and soft sculptures to brilliant colors, the spoken word, and, most importantly, endless reflections and the illusion of space.
