From rural Japan to the New York art scene to contemporary Tokyo, Kusama, well-known for her repeating dot patterns, her art includes painting, drawing, sculpture, film, performance and installation is now all on display at Tate Modern in London. Living voluntarily in a psychiatric institution Kusama wants to share her experiences and her vision of endless dots and nets or infinitely mirrored space. There has never been an exhibition of this size of Kusamas work in the UK, being one of the most prominent contemporary artist from Japan, this is an unmissable opportunity.

Little A (6y), Little B (10y) and their friend T (12y) enjoyed this exhibition very much. They are still very much children with an open and creative mind and the crazyness really appealed and made sense to them. They loved exploring Kusama’s world. This is an extremely personal and intense exhibition, highly recommended for the whole family. We always end our visit with a drink in the Tate Restaurant, located on Level 7, overlooking stunning views of the River Thames and City of London.
