Kusama – Infinity 

When: Thu., Feb. 21, 8 p.m. 2019
Price: $7-$10
Some might be surprised to learn that the most successful living female artist has been a voluntary resident of a mental hospital in Shinjuku, Tokyo since 1977. The incredible story of Yayoi Kusama, now 89-years-old, is as colorful, resilient, and subversive as the art she has created over her 70-year-long career. As a painter, sculpture, poet, and performance artist, Kusama has left an unerasable mark with her reality-shifting installations, spotted canvases, and her mirrored perception of time as seen in her famous Mirror/Infinity Rooms. The 2018 Heather Lenz-directed documentary explores Kusama’s upbringing in WWII Japan and how she has embraced mental illness to become one of the most influential and enigmatic contemporary artists of all time.
