Spots, Mirrors & Moderna Museet


I love visiting museums, there’s something about learning about different artists, learning about world history and discovering more about cultural interests of the past and today.  So I a few weeks ago Sara and I decided to visit the Museet Moderna which is located on the island of Skeppsholmen in central Stockholm and was opened in 1958.

At the time of our visit, a huge section of the museum was devoted to the Yayoi Kusama exhibition. For those who don't know, Yayoi Kusama she the Japanese artist and writer. Throughout her career, she has worked in a wide variety of media, including painting, collage, scat sculpture, performance art, and environmental installations, most of which exhibit her thematic interest in psychedelic colours, repetition and pattern.

I have to say we really enjoyed the exhibition because of the rich selection of paintings, drawings and sculpture that are presented, as well as spatial installations. My favourite of the exhibition part was the Infinity Mirror Room and the universal appeal of pumpkins, of course, which always offer a strange but undeniably fascinating aspect to her work. The exhibition at Museet Moderna offers some stunning recent works by Kusama, and it would be a crime to miss the opportunity to experience them. So if you are in Stockholm the Museet Moderna it's definitely worth a visit.
