A definitive monograph on Japan’s most famous living artist. Kusama has explored painting, printmaking, photography, collage, film and video, performance and installation, and product design.
From the late 1950s to the early 1970s Kusama lived in New York and was at the forefront of many artistic innovations in the city. Returning to Japan in her 40s, she rebuilt her career, waiting years for the international recognition she has recently achieved. In her ninth decade her imagination remains richly creative and she continues to extend the range of her practice.
Having accompanied the first major retrospective exhibition of the artist’s work to be staged in the UK, this lavishly illustrated book features an introductory essay by Frances Morris, director of Tate Modern, as well as four other substantial essays by leading international critics. Topics covered include Kusama’s time in New York, her career after her return to Japan, her installation works, and an exploration of her art from a psychoanalytical point of view.
