The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston (MFAH) is bringing to Houston the poignant and compelling new film profiling the life and career of octogenarian artist Yayoi Kusama (born 1929).
Leaving her conservative Japanese family for New York in the 1960s, Kusama became incredibly prolific, persevering despite constant sexism from the art-world establishment. Kusama movingly tells her own story through interviews, archival films, and her extraordinary art, including her return to Japan and late-career resurgence.
Reflecting on her experiences, the artist says: “No matter how I may suffer for my art, I will have no regrets.”
