Product description


"When people look back at Kusama's work decades from now, they'll see that her idea of creation and infinity has an eternal endurance." ―Marc Jacobs

"The effect of Kusama's work is both so complex and simple. It is produced by the interaction of the two close somewhat parallel planes, at points merging at the surface and at others diverging slightly but powerfully." ―Donald Judd

"Yayoi Kusama comes with a pedigree of film and orchestrated happenings and performance in New York during the 1960s and the 1970s that was every bit as avant-garde as Warhol."―The Art Review Power 100

"Yayoi Kusama is as close as one can get to being called a legend while alive... This updated monograph is richly illustrated and serves as as an unparalleled guide to the work of one the most eccentric artists alive."―Mint (India)

"One of the most iconic and revolutionary artists of our time, internationally renowned for her boundary-pushing work on themes such as infinity, self-image, sexuality and compulsive repetition... Kusama's ability to communicate her artistic vision through various mediums is explored and documented."―CreativeBoom.com

"Still one of the most comprehensive studies of this intriguing artist [...] allows readers to traverse from 'Happenings' in 1960s New York through to Kusama's current work, which encompasses diverse media from paintings to sculpture. And, for the first time, a collection of poems by Kusama are published to accompany the colourful illustrations, compelling essays and interviews by curators and critics."―TheCultureTrip.com

"Enjoy the artist's boundary-pushing work in this comprehensive and colourful book."―The Glossary

"Filled with visual treasures... Now includes poems by the artist."―Harper's Bazaar

"Celebrates the boundary-breaking work of the 88-year old who still captures the imagination of the art world and beyond, reflecting her uncanny ability to remain in the spotlight." ―House & Garden

"Richly illustrated... Explores Kusama's varied career to the present, through informative essays written from diverse scholarly and critical perspectives, as well as interviews with the artist, and selections from her lively poetry and fiction."―The British Museum Magazine

"A fascinating artist."―Visi (South Africa)

"A dose of inspiration (that also looks good on the coffee table)."―Vogue Online
