Avant-garde legend Yayoi Kusama gets her own museum in Tokyo
Five-storey building dedicated to 88-year-old artist attracts huge interest before opening, with visitors restricted to 200 a day
Yayoi Kusama is about to apply a splash of colour to an unremarkable Tokyo suburb with the opening of a new museum dedicated to the avant-garde artist whose career spans six decades, tens of thousands of artworks and countless polka dots.
The 88-year-old’s trademark motif – along with her familiar “infinity nets” and generously lashed eye designs – feature prominently at the museum, from its glass entrance to the interior of the lift and even the mirrored walls of the toilet.
