Virtual Encounter via Zoom / Yayoi Kusama: A Retrospective – A Bouquet of Love I Saw in the Universe

Due to the current national security situation, the Museum will be closed to the public and all activities in physical spaces are postponed until further notice.

We are all going through extremely trying times. In a bid to help, however modestly, we continue to offer, for the third week running, an hour of respite, by providing captivating lectures and encounters every day, free of charge, via Zoom.

This week we will get to know important exhibitions, major artists and especially beloved works held in the collection of the Tel Aviv Museum of Art. We invite you, the culture-loving public, to enjoy an hour of curiosity.

We wish everyone days of peace.

Yayoi Kusama: A Retrospective – A Bouquet of Love I Saw in the Universe / Lecturer: Shahar Molcho, Associate Curator of the exhibition

Yayoi Kusama (b. 1929, Matsumoto, Japan) is one of the most important contemporary artists. This exhibition, which was held at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art last year, was an extraordinary cultural event in Israel. In the course of her long career, Kusama has worked in a wide range of fields, including painting, collage, sculpture, video, performance, installation, fashion, literature and music. Among other things, she often creates immersive environments, such as mirrored “infinity rooms” and large-scale installations in which she blurs the boundary between the viewers and the world around them, in a quest for endless broadening and expansion. The lecture will revisit this iconic exhibition, and provide a glimpse into the curatorial work and complex preparations behind it.
