Year of the Ox

Turns out you’ll have to wait a little longer for Roundabout. The City Gallery has just announced that it will re open in September with Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama. At the age of 79 Kusama has been ‘rediscovered’ having played a significant role in the avant garde scene in sixties New York. In Japan it’s hard to find an art institution that is not featuring her spotted surfaces. Closer to home Kusama shows at Australian Dealer Gallery Roslyn Oxley regular exhibitors of many featured City Gallery artists over recent years. Previous OTN posts on Kusama, here and here.
