KUSAMA - INFINITY
THURSDAY, APRIL 19 @ 6:45PM
GLOBE CINEMA (617 8 AVE SW)

KUSAMA - INFINITY explores artist Yayoi Kusama’s journey from a conservative upbringing in Japan to her brush with fame in America during the 1960s. As a Japanese woman attempting to permeate the white, male-dominated art scene of New York, Kusama was very much an outsider. Her fierce determination and artistry was often overlooked by the press during her formative years even though her work rivalled — and arguably influenced — that of Andy Warhol. Many years later Kusama’s work is finally commanding the attention it deserves.
