About Yayoi Kusama
Yayoi Kusama’s prolific oeuvre ranges from large paintings and sculptures to performance pieces and political demonstrations. Since childhood, Kusama has been creating works using polka dots and nets as motifs in a variety of media. During the 1950s and 1960s, she played a major role in New York’s avant-garde art scene, participating in many happenings, including an unannounced performance in the Sculpture Garden of The Museum of Modern Art in 1969. In 1973, Kusama returned to Japan. Two years later, seeking treatment for her obsessive-compulsive neurosis, she entered the Seiwa Hospital for the Mentally Ill, where she lives and works to this day. She continues to produce paintings and sculpture, and, in the 1980s, added poetry and fiction to her range of creative pursuits.
