“Cosmos Abom” by Yayoi Kusama

SPOT ON: Later this week, Comme des Garçons will inaugurate its new art space on the second floor of its store in Osaka, Japan, with the opening of an exhibition by Yayoi Kusama, famed for her graphic polkadot creations and avant-garde proclivities. The show, entitled “Propagating Room,” features Kusama’s works past and present, and opens to the public Saturday and runs through Nov. 8. Rei Kawakubo designed CDG’s exhibition space, dubbed “Six” after the brand’s now-defunct magazine it published in the Nineties. CDG said the name plays off the idea of the sixth sense and the numeral’s surreal qualities. “This space will not be a regular gallery, where works are merely exhibited or displayed, but a place where the world of Kusama itself will be embodied in strong form,” the company said, adding the space will go on to host other exhibitions in the future.
