YAYOI KUSAMA: LIFE IS THE HEART OF A RAINBOW is a major survey exhibition of one of the world’s most recognizable artists. This is the first large-scale exhibition of Yayoi Kusama’s work presented in Indonesia and includes over 130 works that span almost 70 years of artistic practice.

The exhibition will be presented across the entire museum and will include paintings dating to the 1950s, through to the documentation of performances and happenings during the 1960s, sculptures, recent paintings and ‘infinity mirrored room’ installations. The exhibition traces the development of artistic concepts that are fundamental to Kusama’s vision, including infinity, repetition and self-obliteration.
