Routinely copied by male contemporaries such as Andy Warhol, she faced enormous hurdles of racism and sexism in the post-World War II American art world. Yet her relentless pursuit of recognition, and her ground-breaking use of participatory installation, eventually led her to the fame she deserves. Kusama literally transforms the world around her into colourful, boundary-less infinities. Now living, age 89, in a mental institution in Toyko, she continues to output work which sells for millions. This is a riveting and comprehensive portrait of the world’s most successful living female artist.
