After hot cocoa at a puppy play-date cafe ft. a quartet of dachshunds, and lunch at Lazy Diner in downtown Daegu, we hopped on the subway towards the southeast corner of the city. The Daegu Art Museum is currently exhibiting A Dream I Dreamed, with a collection of over 100 works by Yayoi Kusama. Pieces include paintings, screenprints, installations, and sculptures that take up two floors of space. I was especially excited for this one and our visit did not disappoint. Definitely not one to miss! The exhibition runs until November 3rd.

The DAM grounds are picturesque. Walking out into the crisp pre-fall air was the perfect way to end our gallery visit.

This works out to be the best segue into OF x JAPAN. I've organized my August Tokyo trip by neighbourhood and will start to post them soon, promise. I'll leave you with this quirky little video.
