"Kusama – Infinity" + Remarks by Curator Laura Burkhalter

4/22/2018 / 1:30pm

*Reservations required
This screening will be repeated on Wednesday, May 2, 2018.

Kusama – Infinity explores Yayoi Kusama’s fierce determination to become a world-renowned artist. Kusama was born into a conservative family in rural Japan and she made her way to America on the heels of WWII. There, without connections and speaking only broken English, she devoted herself to her one true love, making art. On her first day in New York, Kusama has stated that she climbed to the top of the Empire State Building, looked down upon the city below, and made a decision to stand out from everyone she saw below and become a star.

Curator Laura Burkhalter will speak about Kusama’s four furniture sculptures in the Art Center’s collection as well as the newly added bronze titled Pumpkin (L) to the Pappajohn Sculpture Park after the screening. This film is related programming for the exhibition Yayoi Kusama.
