Down the Rabbit Hole in Colorful Dots, Twisted Typography: Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland: The Art of Yayoi Kusama

Click on the image above to link to our catalog

Yayoi Kusama is Japan’s most celebrated contemporary artist, and she brings us a new and a captivating take on Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.

Kusama sees colorful spots on everything she looks at due to a rare eye condition she has had since she was a child. For most of us it would be a hindrance but Kusama has used it to her advantage by creating bright and vibrant hallucinogenic art.

Now you can read Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland illustrated with Kusama’s illustrations. It certainly is a different way to read Alice but a wonderful crazy one.

Memorial Art Gallery-Transformation/Revelation: The Art of Change

May 24–September 9, 2012 in the Lockhart Gallery

May 24–September 9, 2012 in the Lockhart Gallery

At the heart of nearly every work of art is change, whether it is the transformation of the material itself or the revelation of a new aspect or idea. Each of the more than 30 works in this encyclopedic exhibition invites the viewer to discover that which is transformed or revealed by the artist. The works, all from MAG’s extensive collection of drawings and prints, range from a 16th-century woodcut by the Dutch artist Goltzius to an innovative solarplate etching by a contemporary master printmaker (pictured at left).
