The gallery’s vision is to explore the works of artists and sculptors who sought new approaches to art, with a particular attention to the XX and XXI century. The identity of the gallery is defined for its strong exhibition programme featuring leading modern and contemporary Italian and international artists. It continuously works in collaboration with institutions, estates and foundations, to organize museum-quality exhibitions. Mucciaccia Gallery has built a reputation for working closely with curators to define and support the artistic career of their artists, and to highlight their work on an international scale.

The exhibition features her iconic sculpture pieces from her series Hi, Konnichiwa (Hello)! which were first presented in the solo exhibition KUSAMATRIX, held in 2004 at the Mori Art Museum. The show attracted over half a million visitors.
The exhibition includes also her signature Infinity polka dots paintings. The artist once said “In the universe, there is the sun, the moon, the earth, and hundreds of millions of stars.” and she portrayed her life as one dot among thousands of other dots. Kusama associated the polka dots with the Sun and the Moon, as the dots had their same shape, whereby the Sun symbolized energy and the Moon tranquility.
Also on view are her magnificent works on paper, raging from 1951 to 1981. Kusama first came to New York in 1958, bringing with her over 2,000 drawings. She later disclosed that the drawings were the source of her artistic ideas which she explored over six decades.
