The work of Yayoi Kusama (Japan, b. 1929) has transcended two of the most significant art movements of the second half of the twentieth century: Pop and Minimalism. Her highly influential career spans paintings, performances, room-size presentations, outdoor sculptural installations, literary works, poetry, film, fashion, design and interventions within existing architectural structures, which allude at once to microscopic and macroscopic universes.
Celebrated contemporary artist Yayoi Kusama brings her unique vision to MIA Park and Al Riwaq.
My Soul Blooms Forever is the largest outdoor exhibition of its kind to take place in the Gulf region. The exhibition consists of monumental sculptures and installations throughout MIA Park and Al Riwaq, including recent work such as the giant Dancing Pumpkin (2020) and renowned works such as Narcissus Garden (1966/2022).
With a selection of major artworks, including a signature – Infinity Mirrored Room - Dancing Lights that Flew Up to the Universe (2019) – the exhibition offers an extraordinary opportunity to experience Kusama’s unique vision and unparalleled creativity.
