Summary
This film explores artist Yayoi Kusama's fierce determination to express the world as she saw it, ultimately leading to her status as a world-renowned contemporary artist. Kusama battled sexism and racism in the vicious art scene of New York, but her passion, talent and perseverance lead her work to find homes in galleries across the world. We follow her journey from a conservative upbringing in Japan to her brush with fame in America during the 1960s and concludes with the international fame she has finally achieved within the art world. Now in her 80s, Kusama has spent the last 30 years living in a mental institution in Japan where she is able to get treatment for the illness she has battled through her art her whole life, and pursue and share her artistic practice with the world. Nominated for the Documentary Grand Jury Prize at the **Sundance Film Festival**. *"KUSAMA - INFINITY provides illuminating access to an artist's way of thinking and working." Ben Kenigsberg, **The New York Times***
