Following on the heels of Alexander McQueen: Mind, Mythos, Muse and the NGV Triennial, Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama has been revealed as the next in line for the 2024 summer blockbuster exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV).

This ambitious presentation seeks to capture Kusama’s eight-decade career, from her early childhood drawings deeply affected by her hallucinations of dot-covered surroundings to the artist’s globally popularised Infinity Mirror Rooms.
