CASETiFY, the global tech accessory brand loved by Gen Z, millennials, and Hollywood celebrities, has announced today its cooperation with M+, Asia’s first global museum of contemporary visual culture in the West Kowloon Cultural District of Hong Kong, to create tech accessories themed after one of its most expected exhibitions to date Yayoi Kusama: 1945 to Now, opening on November 12.
CASETiFY joins hands with M+ to create a series of exclusive phone cases for the largest retrospective exhibition of Kusama in Asia outside Japan, allowing fans, art enthusiasts and museum goers to own tech accessories inspired by Kusama’s artworks.
The phone cases are exclusively available at the exhibition shop, The M+ Shop, The Other Shop at M+ or online: https://shop.mplus.org.hk/.
The collection will feature four artworks from the M+’s first Special Exhibition Yayoi Kusama: 1945 to Now.
Yayoi Kusama emerged as a global cultural icon for the twenty-first century by pursuing her uncompromising avant-garde vision. Yayoi Kusama: 1945 to Now examines Kusama’s artistic practice as it developed in Japan, the United States, Europe, and beyond through six themes: Infinity, Accumulation, Radical Connectivity, Biocosmic, Death, and Force of Life.
