While You Weren’t Looking, Yayoi Kusama Sneakily Built Herself Her Own Museum in Tokyo

Yayoi Kusama is immensely popular. Her travelling retrospective, open for 11 weeks in Washington, attracted over 500,000 visitors. Recently, and without much fanfare, she announced the imminent opening of a museum in Tokyo dedicated to her own works. Its centerpiece will be her “infinity rooms”. Expect more queues.
