CANCELLED: Art Through the Ages: A Guided Tour of Yayoi Kusama and Toriawase
March 18, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
The Ackland Art Museum houses a variety of permanent collections and special exhibitions, both of which hold important cultural history. The Honors Carolina Student Association is pleased to host a guided tour of the current special exhibition, “Yayoi Kusama: Open the Shape Called Love” and “Toriawase: A Special Installation of Modern Japanese Art and Ceramics.” Yayoi Kusama’s “Infinity Rooms,” which are mirrored and specially lit environments, have recently been a premier attraction for art lovers all over the world. The exhibit includes a range of intimate “dot paintings” and “net paintings,” and examples of her provocative sculpture and multi-media work. Toriawase is a Japanese concept that loosely means to choose and combine objects with exquisite care. This special installation approaches the combination of modern art and ceramics in this spirit, aiming less for a historical or scholarly approach and more for an intuitive, experiential orchestration of relationships and correspondences. Learn more about “Yayoi Kusama” here and about “Toriawase” here. Join the Honors Carolina Student Association for a special tour led by Brigitte Cao. Click here to RSVP.
