Yayoi Kusama is one of the most successful visual artists in the world (her exhibition at the Broad Museum, Los Angeles, reportedly had 150,000 people joining the digital ticket queue in five minutes), her works are instantly recognisable thanks to her iconic use of colour, form, polka dots and mirrors.
In Kusama - Infinity, debut feature director Heather Lenz tells the story of the artist and her work, tracing Yayoi Kusama’s life from her childhood in Japan, through her correspondence with artist Georgia O’Keeffe, life in sixties New York, and beyond. Under Lenz’s direction what emerges is a story of an artist that is both moving and inspiring, and which will resonate with all audiences.
“Kusama's survival and irrepressible creative energy is an inspiring example for us all, especially for women, and women of color in particular, who still must struggle for recognition in a world that often seems determined to stack the decks against them.” - Screenanarchy
