From Sharjah to Tokyo, Yayoi Kusama's work is set to be immortalised in a new museum. Buro 24/7 Middle East has the details...

Once dubbed the world's most popular artist, Yayoi Kusama has just announced that a permanent museum is opening to house her works exclusively. Set to open in Tokyo, Japan, the home country of the artist, the dedicated site will see her paintings, sculptures, installations and archives on display. Some of her most famous works, think the Infinity Mirror Rooms and the yellow pumpkin sculptures, which were on display at the Sharjah Art Foundation earlier this year, will also be housed in the five-storey building.
