80 Years of Yakoi’s Accomplishments

Yayoi Kusama: A Retrospective

Stephanie Rosenthal


A companion to her first major European retrospective exhibition (Gropius Bau, Berlin, until Aug 15), this comprehensive overview of the Japanese artist’s work covers 80 years, from her early paintings through her accomplishments in the worlds of fashion and film to her accumulative sculptures and immersive environments and illuminates her commitment to political and social issues. As panoramic and fascinating as its subject, the book guides readers to a deeper understanding of Kusama’s creative trajectory and the breadth of her extraordinary career.
