Yayoi Kusama is the top-selling female artist in the world, best known for her colorful polka dot and pumpkin-themed designs and her massively popular Infinity Rooms. Her work has pushed boundaries that often alienated her from her peers and those in power in the art world. “Kusama-Infitity” shows the artist overcoming the odds to bring her radical artistic vision to the world stage - growing up om Japan during WWII, life in a dysfunctional family that discourages her creative ambitions. Kusama has created a legacy of artwork that spans the disciplines of painting, sculpture, performance art poetry and novels.
