Remark  rare

Rare exhibition poster, published in a very limited edition, issued by the Matsumoto City Museum of Art in Japan.

The drawing lines and typography were applied in a special process (thickened with high gloss black and red ink) on medium thick matt white paper.

The actual colors of the print are as shown in the main photo and the details: red, black and clear white.

The last 2 photos were intentionally taken with a different exposure to show the printing effect.

Yayoi Kusama

Avant-garde Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama was an influential figure in the postwar New York art scene, staging provocative happenings and exhibiting works such as her 'Infinity Nets', hallucinatory paintings of loops and dots (and physical representations of the idea of infinity).
Narcissus Garden, an installation of hundreds of mirrored balls, earned Kusama notoriety at the 1966 Venice Biennale, where she attempted to sell the individual spheres to passersby.
Kusama counted Donald Judd and Eva Hesse among her close friends, and is often considered an influence on Andy Warhol and a precursor to Pop art.
Since her return to Japan in the 1970s, Kusama's work has continued to appeal to the imagination and the senses, including dizzying walk-in installations, public sculptures, and the 'Dots Obsessions' paintings.
