Update: Due to the current COVID-19 situation, Mucciaccia Gallery has decided to postpone the Yayoi Kusama exhibition until further notice.

Were you one of those who queued up for hours waiting to get into the Yayoi Kusama show at National Gallery Singapore back in 2017? Now, you can do it all over again at Mucciaccia Gallery at Gillman Barracks. The gallery, which specialises in modern masters and established contemporary artists, is bringing over a highly-curated selection of Kusama’s paintings, sculptures and work on paper for three months from 27 March 2020.

Red Pumpkin (1996)

Don’t expect the same things you’ve seen before though — the exhibition will focus on the artist’s older works dating from 1951 to 1981 (and a small selection of more recent works), which includes her trademark Infinity Net paintings where she portrays her life as one dot amongst thousands of others — figuratively, of course. Following a showing in Mucciaccia Gallery’s New York space, the exhibition arrives in Singapore with 28 works of art, such as signature sculptures from her Hi, Konnichiwa (Hello)! Series that was first presented in the Mori Art Museum in 2004 as part of her solo exhibition KUSAMATRIX, where it attracted over 500,000 visitors.

Mushrooms (2004)

Kusama, who was born in 1929, is best known for her iconic dots and pumpkins, and has captivated millions around the world. She works in various mediums including painting, sculpture, performance art, and installations in styles like Pop Art and Minimalism. Her earlier works in particularly revolve around the concept of ‘infinity nets’, consisting of thousands of tiny marks obsessively repeated across large canvases, crossing the border as if continuing into infinity.

The exhibition in Singapore is running for three months from 27 March 2020 at Mucciaccia Gallery, Block 6 Lock Road, #02-10, Gillman Barracks, Singapore 108934, p. +65 6694 3777.
