Yayoi Kusama’s (b. 1929) remarkable artistic practice has fascinated the public for over six decades. Like few other artists she moves resolutely between painting and sculpture, between art and design, and between East and West.

Yayoi Kusama – In Infinity is the first major retrospective presentation of Kusama’s oeuvre in Scandinavia, spanning her entire artistic career from the early 1950s until today. The exhibition features a rich selection of paintings, drawings and sculptures, including spatial installations and performance-related material, paying particular attention to works from the late 1980s, after Kusama’s return to Japan. It is also the first comprehensive exhibition featuring Kusama’s interest in fashion and design. On view are works never shown previously, as well as a series of paintings made especially for Yayoi Kusama – In Infinity.

How are we affected by colours?

Does the colour of the room really affect our mood? And If so, is the effect universal?

Most of us have colour preferences and we reflect those preferences in the clothes we wear, the colours of furniture, floors and walls in our homes. Interior designers love to tell us that the colour of our surroundings plays a big role in our emotions, our productivity and our personality type. And often they refer to research as the basis for these claims.

But what does science really say about how colours affect us? And do they have the same effect on all of us? Find out at

To celebrate the addition of the 112 new hues, Pantone collaborated with leading designers renowned for embracing color in their work, including Jessica Walsh of Sagmeister & Walsh, famed book cover designer Chip Kidd and Eddie Opara of Pentagram. Each designer created new, original works inspired the 112 new colors. The digital works will roll out on Pantone’s Instagram page in a campaign titled, “New Colors, New Possibilities” marked with the hashtag #PantoneNewColors.

Perceiving colour as sound

Did you know that the colour red equals a semitone between F and F sharp?

Thats one of the things contempory artist and cyborg Neil Harbisson told us at the award ceremony for Prisad Färg 2015. Harbisson was born completely colour blind, but an antenna attached to his head turns colours into audible frequencies. Instead of seeing a world in grayscale, Harbisson can hear a symphony of colours — and even listen to faces and paintings.

Apparently the colours of the Swedish flag are  worth lending an ear to – Harbisson always dresses in colours that are pleasant to listen to.
