Influential Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama, whose 2012 Tate Modern exhibition brought her to prominence in the UK, exhibits her white Infinity Nets for the first time in Europe at the first exhibition at the new Victoria Miro gallery in Mayfair from 1st October 2013. Kusama, best known for her repeating dot patterns, first came to prominence in the 1960s, mixing with artists like Donald Judd and Andy Warhol, achieving fame with groundbreaking art happenings. She studied at the Kyoto Municipal School of Arts and Crafts, and by 1950 had moved from traditional Japanese painting to abstract natural forms. In her most productive periods, in her 20s, she was producing "dozens of paintings a day" (The Guardian), and during a career spanning half a century she has created an estimated 50,000 works. In this Victoria Miro exhibition the viewer is completely surrounded with white Infinity Nets in an echo of some of her earliest solo shows in America from the 50s and 60s yet featuring a new group of work.
Three decades after opening her first gallery in Cork Street, Victoria Miro returns to Mayfair to open a third space in October 2013. The gallery, designed by Claudio Silvestrin Architects and executed by Michael Drain Architects, will occupy 19,000 square feet on the ground floor of three buildings, making it one of the largest commercial spaces in London.
