Kusama Style Expressive Tattoo Design

This workshop is for participants ages 16 or above. Tickets to the event only includes admission to the workshop only. Please purchase a ticket separately for the special exhibition Yayoi Kusama: 1945 to Now or a General Admission ticket to other M+ galleries.

What elements of Kusama’s work capture your attention? Is it her polka-dotted vision? The vibrant colours that she uses? Or her repetitive yet mesmerising patterns?

Kusama sees art as a therapeutic process that connect and heal, confronting her emotions and transforming them into pivotal works of art. Inspired by her artistic practice, artist Igor Chan will guide participants to design unique temporary tattoos that express their emotions associated with personal experiences and thoughts.

Through this workshop, participants will learn about Kusama’s major motifs related to her uncompromising vision towards life and her longing for interconnection. Discover the stories of others around you and connect through tattoos!

Complementing Yayoi Kusama: 1945 to Now, this workshop explores the core philosophy of life through the lens of Yayoi Kusama.
