Kusama – Infinity explores trailblazing Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama’s journey from a conservative upbringing in Japan to her brush with fame in America during the 1960s and concludes with the international fame she finally achieved within the art world. When she was younger she wrote a letter to Georgia O’Keeffe, who invited her to visit in New Mexico and encouraged her to go to New York. She fought for respect in the male dominated art world and the film maintains that Lucas Samaras, Claes Oldenburg, and Andy Warhol copied her work.

Now at the age of 88 Yayoi Kusama is currently one of the most popular and successful artists in the world. Her recent New York gallery exhibition, “Yayoi Kusama: Festival of Life” – featuring her signature “Infinity Mirror Rooms,” with brightly colored mirror balls in a space with mirrored walls – drew many thousands of visitors, with lines stretching around the block, and up to six-hour waits to enter the gallery. Kusama’s installations, paintings, and sculptures tour around the world practically non-stop, and command top prices at auctions.
