Who is Yayoi Kusama? / Facts

  • A precursor of the pop art, minimalist and feminist art movements, Kusama influenced contemporaries such as Andy Warhol and Claes Oldenburg
  • Although largely forgotten after departing the New York art scene in the early 1970s, Kusama is now acknowledged as one of the most important living artists to come out of Japan, and an important voice of the avant-garde
  • Kusama's work is based in conceptual art and shows some attributes of feminism, minimalism, surrealism, Art Brut, pop art, and abstract expressionism, and is infused with autobiographical, psychological, and sexual content
  • Kusama is also a published novelist and poet, and has created notable work in film and fashion design
  • Major retrospectives of her work have been held at the Museum of Modern Art in 1998, the Whitney Museum in 2012, and Tate Modern in 2012
  • In 2006, she received a Women's Caucus for Art Lifetime Achievement Award
  • In 2008, Christie's New York sold a work by her for $5.1 million, then a record for a living female artist
