Yayoi Kusama: All About My Love
A retrospective of Yayoi Kusama, Japan's most prominent artist and 'Queen of the Polka Dots'. Avant-garde artist Yayoi Kusama's matchless creativity and originality have been captivating the world since she moved from Matsumoto, her hometown in Nagano, Japan, to the USA in 1958. In the last ten years alone, her retrospective exhibitions in four major European and American museums, including Tate Modern, London, and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, have seen record attendance.
This comprehensive publication, originally published to accompany a sell-out exhibition at Matsumoto City Museum of Art, offers a comprehensive overview of Kusama's entire career, including works from her youth, when she indulged in drawing in order to escape from her hallucinations; paintings made when she was based in New York, including 'Infinity Nets' and 'Polka Dots'; works from the1980s and 1990s, when she participated in the Venice Biennale; and last but not least, the ongoing large-scale series 'My Eternal Soul'.
