Yayoi Kusama: Life is the Heart of a Rain­bow

Where Gold Coast - - What’s On Brisbane -

Co-cu­rated with the Na­tional Gallery Singapore, this vi­brant exhibition sur­veys the work of lead­ing con­tem­po­rary Ja­panese artist Yayoi Kusama. A wild and won­der­ful journey through sig­nif­i­cant moments in Kusama’s ca­reer, the exhibition ex­plores over seven decades of the artist’s prac­tice through more than 70 works.

In an Aus­tralian ex­clu­sive, “Gla­di­a­tors: He­roes of the Colos­seum” is now on at Queens­land Mu­seum. The exhibition fea­tures more than 110 orig­i­nal arte­facts in­clud­ing pieces of the Colos­seum, au­then­tic elab­o­rately dec­o­rated bronze glad­i­a­tor hel­mets and orig­i­nal arms and ar­mour pre­served in the ashes of Pom­peii. In this very rare and unique op­por­tu­nity visi­tors are able to im­merse them­selves in the ev­ery­day lives of An­cient Ro­man Gla­di­a­tors with in­ter­ac­tive games and dis­plays that re­veal who gla­di­a­tors were, where they lived and how they trained. The exhibition fea­tures arte­facts from seven Ital­ian mu­se­ums and in­sti­tu­tions.

Un­til 28 Jan­uary, Queens­land Mu­seum, Grey Street, South Bank. 3840 7303. qm.qld.gov.au
