Ask anything

  • Amira Kroon asked

    I have to give a presentation about Yayoi Kusama's One Thousand Boats Show. Where can i find more information about this artwork? And about yayoi kusama's history?

  • Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen answered

    Hi Amira, the One Thousand Boats Show is in the collection of the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam. There is a bit of information on the internet, but you might find more detailed information there. Kusama had a solo exhibition in our museum in 2008 where the Boat Show was a central piece. You might be able to find the catalogue (Mirrored Years), which contains good information about her life and work. Kind regards, Els

More information

From the very start of her career Yayoi Kusama posed for photographs amid her installations and sculptures. These photographs generated a lot of publicity and focused attention on Kusama as an eccentric artist. Each time she carefully directed the way she was portrayed. On occasions she reclined in her installations like a pin-up model; in other photographs she seems to disappear altogether. The patterns that fill the space continue on her body or on the fabric of her clothes. Kusama regularly exhibited in the Castellane Gallery in New York. She was a much sought-after artist in the Netherlands too. From 1962 onwards she exhibited at Galerie A in Amsterdam, at Galerie Delta and Galerie ’t Venster in Rotterdam and in the Orez gallery in The Hague.
