Remember when we travelled to Houston to see Kusama? How could we not catch her in Japan too! We also caught another of my favorites, Mucha! Sadly, I wasn’t allowed to film in Art Nouveau.
After the National Art Center Toyo, we walked through Roppongi Hills (and made a legitimate attempt to creep on the Pokémon Company) to Tokyo Tower. The top floor wasn’t even open, but WHAT A VIEW we got regardless!
This is my second to last Japan vlog, but I’ve got a few more Japan posts in the works too! Stay tuned!
Remember the time I traveled 1,847 miles for art? Then asked my boyfriend if he even liked art?*
The main purpose of our Houston trip was to see Kusama: At the End of the Universe at the MFA Houston. I can’t recommend travelling for art enough! Think about how many people visit the Louvre every year. Sure, Houston’s not Paris, but this exhibit was well worth the trip.
Yayoi Kusama’s infinity boxes are mirror room exhibits that you step into and experience. At the End of the Universe is in Houston for roughly another week, (September 18th,) so if you can go see it, I recommend you do. I couldn’t let the opportunity to see these infinity rooms go, so I took it! The added benefit was getting to see a new city. Our only regret is we didn’t get to see this exhibit again! We were only able to snipe tickets for Monday, as they sold out fast for the weekend.
Matt recorded the experience on his GoPro, and I didn’t want to slice the clips up for my vlog, so I’ve made another little video so you can experience Kusama: At the End of the Universe too!
*He doesn’t, for the record, but he still loved this exhibit!
