Yayoi Kusama – a force of life

Yayoi Kusama is that rare thing: an artist who has achieved truly global acclaim. In a wide-ranging career spanning seven decades and multiple media, she has established profound connections with audiences around the world. Emerging at the forefront of artistic experimentation in Asia in the mid-20th century, Kusama soon became a central figure in the New York art scene of the 1960s. Today, Kusama continues to communicate her highly personal and spiritual world view through her art.

Yayoi Kusama: 1945 to Now is the most comprehensive survey of her work to date. Structured around six thematic sections, 'Infinity', 'Accumulation', 'The Biocosmic', 'Radical Connectivity', 'Death' and 'Force of Life', the volume elucidates the aesthetic and philosophical concerns at the heart of the artist's oeuvre.

In addition to a selection of Kusama's writings, some of which have never been published before, the book features correspondence with Georgia O'Keeffe, an interview with critic and curator Yoshie Yoshida, and a roundtable discussion among leading authorities in the field. Also included are curatorial essays exploring different aspects of Kusama's practice, and a detailed visual chronology of her life. Appealing not only to those already familiar with Kusama and her work, but also to anyone discovering it for the first time, this monograph reveals an artist who, while shaped by international artistic currents, remains deeply connected to the traditions and culture of her native Japan.
