YAYOI KUSAMA

YAYOI KUSAMA: INFINITY MIRRORED ROOM - LOVE FOREVER 1996/1994

Yayoi Kusama, born March 22, 1929 is a Japanese artist and writer. Throughout her career she has worked in a wide variety of media, including painting, collage, soft sculpture, performance art, and environmental installations, most of which exhibit her thematic interest in psychedelic colors, repetition, and pattern. Guided by her unique vision and unparalleled creativity, critically acclaimed artist Yayoi Kusama has been breaking new ground for more than six decades.


She first used the mirror as a multi-reflective device in Infinity Mirror RoomPhalli’s Field, 1965, transforming the intense repetition that marked some of her earlier works into an immersive experience. Kusama returned to Japan in 1973 but has continued to develop her mirrored installations, and over the years, she has attained cult status, not only as an artist, but as a novelist.


In 1993, she became the first woman to have a solo presentation at the Venice Biennale’s Japanese Pavilion, and in 2016, Time magazine named her one of the world’s most influential people. In 2015, the website Artsy named Kusama one of the Top 10 Living Artists of the year.


All students participating in this Visual, Media and Photography Arts Field Trip should make prior arrangements to be picked after return to the school. We will not return to the school until at least 7:00PM that night. Students should also bring extra funds for meals.
