Yayoi Kusama Museum to Open in Shinjuku

A towering white structure has stood in the Shinjuku ward since its completion in 2014. Locals and tourists have waited endlessly for the ultimate reveal of its purpose: the new Yayoi Kusama museum. The five-storey structure, built by Kume Sekkei, features  wrap-around windows and sprawling hardwood floors. The second and third floors are dedicated exhibition spaces, while the fourth floor houses Kusama’s immersive installations, and the fifth serves as an athenaeum of Kusama’s relative documents and materials. In addition to housing Kusama’s works, this museum will host rotating exhibits twice per year. Opening October 1st, the dedicatory exhibit “Creation is a Solitary Pursuit, Love is What Brings You Closer to Art” will run until February 25th, 2018.
