Kusama is internationally renowned for her groundbreaking work on themes such as infinity, self-image, sexuality, and compulsive repetition. A well-known name in the Manhattan scene of the 1960s, Kusama’s subsequent work combined Psychedelia and Pop culture with patterning, often resulting in participatory installations and series of paintings. This revised and expanded edition of the 2000 monograph, which is arguably still one of the most comprehensive studies on her work to date, has been augmented by an essay by Catherine Taft and a collection of new poems by the artist.
An exhibition of two major works of art by the internationally acclaimed artist Yayoi Kusama–Where the Lights in My Heart Go (2016), one of Kusama’s famed Infinity Rooms, and Narcissus Garden (1966), an installation of 1200 stainless steel spheres opened MoCA Westport’s new space in September 2019. Well-known for her repeating and expansive dot patterns, Kusama’s art spans numerous mediums including sculpture, painting, drawing, film, performance and immersive installation.
