The first group exhibition at the Yayoi Kusama Museum, Tokyo (5 March–31 May 2020) focuses on Kusama's activity in Europe during the 1960s and introduces the work of the artist network ZERO, first initiated by Heinz Mack and Otto Piene in Düsseldorf in 1958.
Kusama was based in New York at that time and attracted attention within the European art scene through her frequent participation in exhibitions led by ZERO artists.
