Polka Dot Disaster: Indonesian Art Museum Called out for Copying Yayoi Kusama
Rabbit Town, known for its "selfie tourism"...
Entertainment 12 Apr 2018

Kusama1
A selfie-friendly museum by the name of Rabbit Town in Indonesia is being called out for copying famous artworks and creating duplicates on their premises. The tourist destination, known for its “selfie tourism” features large-scale stuffed rabbits, colorful walls and installations to pose in front of, including works that seemingly rip off the polka-dotted works of Yayoi Kusama, the light sculpture of Chris Burden, as well as the Museum of Ice Cream. The museum has been called out on Instagram but has since disabled its comment section. Guess that isn’t the answer? No lawsuits have been reported, as of yet.
