Prep Yrself For A Brain Melt ‘Cos Yayoi Kusama’s Opening A Museum In Japan

Oh shit my good friends, those incredible infinity rooms that contemporary Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama dreams up and drops into reality are getting a permanent home in Japan.

If you were lucky enough to see her exhibition at Sydney‘s Museum of Contemporary Art in 2009, then you know how bloody beaut this will be to add to your list of shit to do in Japan.

The New York Times reports that the permanent exhibition will be opening on October 1 in the Shinjuku district, and will be a mammoth five storeys of mind-warping splendour, multi-coloured polka dots, and very good Instagram content.

The first installation is called ‘Creation is a Solitary Pursuit, Love is What Brings You Closer to Art’ and runs from opening through to February 23.

Tickets are going for $11.50 from August 28 and gets you a 90 minute sesh in the museum. I can guarantee you, there will be lines.

And if you can’t wait to get over to Japan to visit the mecca of Yayoi Kusama’s work, then skip along to Brisbane‘s Gallery of Modern Art from November 4 to check out ‘Life Is The Heart Of A Rainbow’ or Melbourne‘s National Gallery of Victoria for the Triennial from December 10.

You get the idea.
