A retrospective of Yayoi Kusama, Japan’s most prominent artist and ‘Queen of Polka Dots’, in the year of her 90th birthday. Her matchless creativity and originality have been captivating the world since she moved from Matsumoto, her hometown in Japan, to the USA in 1958. In the last ten years alone, her retrospective exhibitions in four major European and American museums, including Tate Modern, London, and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, have seen record attendance.
This comprehensive publication, originally published to accompany a sell-out exhibition at Matsumoto City Museum of Art, offers a comprehensive overview of Kusama’s entire career, including works from her youth to her participation in Venice Biennale in 1966, and the ongoing large-scale series ‘My Eternal Soul’. The plates are in chronological order and followed by detailed captions.
