Heather Lenz: Kusama – Infinity (2018)

Running time: 80'

Heather Lenz’s feature documentary Kusama – Infinity portrays Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama’s turbulent quest to achieve international fame. The film traces her journey from a conservative upbringing in rural Japan to her brush with celebrity in America during the 1960s, where she battled sexism and racism. Kusama’s hallucinations of polka dots shaped her art, but eventually led her to the Tokyo mental institution where she has lived voluntarily for over 40 years. Now in her late 80s, she is one of the most popular artists in the world.

Screening followed by a Q&A with Heather Lenz and Marian Masone.
