A New World

Opera Gallery Singapore is proud to present A New World, featuring iconic works from Yayoi Kusama and Niki de Saint Phalle. Born just a year apart from each other, they find commonality through shared contexts and the use of bold, eclectic colours. 

With their undeniable sense of creativity, Kusama and Saint Phalle were female artists best described as “being ahead of their time”, in an age where the art world is starting to welcome heterodox ideas; and generally male-dominated. Both artists were, in their unique ways, creating “A New World” as they envisioned it, where the boundaries between art and life were deliquescent and art was a thoroughfare to understanding life. Whether it was pertaining to personal struggles or wider socio-political issues, both Kusama and Saint Phalle portrayed their anxieties and aspirations in creations that were fantastical, ravishing and visionary.
