Yayoi Kusama: In Infinity
STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN  •  Moderna Museet  •  11 June - 11 September 2016
 
Moderna Museet and ArkDes are now featuring Kusama in a retrospective exhibition covering her oeuvre from early nature studies to installations that suspend time and space.

In 1957, Yayoi Kusama left Japan for New York. Here, at the heart of the vibrant 1960s art scene, she created many of her most important works.  She later staged anti-Vietnam war protests, marches surrounded by hippie followers, political performances and orgies where she painted the naked bodies of the participants with dots. As a non-Western woman in the excluding, male-dominated art world of the time, Kusama was a rare bird, but she soon gained fame and recognition.

Yayoi Kusama – In Infinity is the first major retrospective presentation of Kusama’s oeuvre in Scandinavia, spanning her entire artistic career from the early 1950s until today. The exhibition features a rich selection of paintings, drawings and sculptures, including spatial installations and performance-related material, paying particular attention to works from the late 1980s, after Kusama’s return to Japan. It is also the first comprehensive exhibition featuring Kusama’s interest in fashion and design. On view are works never shown previously, as well as a series of paintings made especially for Yayoi Kusama – In Infinity.

The New Human
STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN  •  Moderna Museet  •  21 May 2016 - 5 March 2017
 
 
The New Human is a video-based exhibition project that artistically explores our current condition as humans, while also presenting imagined scenarios of our future. The project’s first chapter, titled You and I in Global Wonderland, addresses pressing issues of our time relating to migration, alienation, and political and religious extremism, including the rise of nationalist and neo-fascist movements in Sweden and Europe.

All works presented in The New Human have been produced since the year 2000, the turn of the millennium, and span from seminal contemporary classics to very recent productions. At Moderna Museet Malmö, The New Human is presented in two chapters, each with a different focus and subtitle: You and I in Global Wonderland in 2015 and Knock, Knock, Is Anyone Home? in 2016.
