Young People Meet-up:
Building Kusama’s Boundless World through a Board Game

This event is for participants age sixteen to twenty-four.

Dive into Yayoi Kusama’s boundless world with members of M+ Young Collective. Explore the impossible with worldbuilding through a board game and present your imagined world through writing.

Kusama’s works offer a glimpse of her artistic vision and unique, personal aesthetics, inspired by her fascination of the interconnectedness of life and the universe. In this workshop, participants will collaboratively build a world intertwined with fantasy and reality by answering questions posed by the board game, ’One Hour to Build the World’, designed by game designer and scholar Kaelan Doyle-Myerscough. The process invites participants to reflect on their lived experience, giving everyone an opportunity to understand how different people perceive the world and its interconnections. Creative practitioner Nixon Wong will then lead a creative writing exercise, where participants will transform the world they built into literary works to be published on the M+ Youth social media platforms after the event.

Complementing M+’s special exhibition Yayoi Kusama: 1945 to Now, this workshop explores the core philosophy of life through the lens of Yayoi Kusama.
