As a polka dots lover, I was very curious to see the exhibition Infinite Obsession, in Centro Cultural Banco do Brasil (CCBB), by the japanese artist Yayoi Kusama, and last week I finally had the opportunity!
I didn’t know any of Kusama’s work before,and it was my first time in touch with her art. Besides her weird obssession for phallic symbols, her polka dots inspired paintings and installations were really good. The whole exhibition takes three floors in CCBB and it is really worth the visit.
I got very surprised of how CCBB was crowded for Kusama’s exhibition. That was a little annoying because I couldn’t enjoy the exhibition the way I like, reading all the details about the art pieces. But I still had a great time there!
For those who are following my blog for a while, might already have noticed how I like art exhibitions and CCBB this year is hosting great art exhibitions.
I’m already waiting anxiously for the next exhibition in CCBB.
If you happen to be in Rio de Janeiro, pay a visit to CCBB, Kusama’s exhibition will be on CCBB until january 20th.
