Yayoi Kusama at Tate Modern

Went to the Yayoi Kusama exhibition at the Tate Modern yesterday. It was a fine retrospective and explained the various phases of her career in a clear and interesting way. Some of her pieces are truly magical, all of them are exciting and engaging. Go while it is still on!
