Kusama created an monochrome environment, consisting of everyday objects, everything painted white: walls, floor, chairs, a table, a sideboard, bowls and even a piano. Over a period of 2 weeks, children were given brightly colored, round stickers to leave their mark on walls and objects to recreate the environment. One can only imagine the fun the kids had.
Apart from a strong educational or inspirational effect on the children, the installation makes a strong statement about the museum, but also generates excitement and engagement with art, offering a different approach for children how to relate to art.
The positive Word Of Mouth and media exposure for the museum, thanks to the installation must be staggering. This blog post is another proof of it.
