Kusama: Princess of Polka Dots
|Heather Lenz, Karen Johnson |
Yayoi Kusama made her mark on the 1960s New York art scene before being ostracized by the critics and falling into obscurity. Now in her 80s, Kusama resides in a Tokyo mental institution and is considered one of Japan's greatest living artists. Her art, which draws on her own mental illness, prefigured many movements like Pop Art and minimalism, while also challenging notions about femininity and sexuality. Princess of Polka Dots examines Kusama's journey from a conservative upbringing in Japan to her brush with fame in America to her prodigious work while institutionalized and also examines the broader concept of art and mental illness.
