Dear Library Patrons, The mission of NYPL is to inspire lifelong learning, advance knowledge, and strengthen our communities. Government support only pays for a portion of our work, so we rely on you to help - from stocking our shelves with amazing books, expanding our e-Book selection, classes, events, or even making free WiFi accessible to all. We are trying to raise $500,000 by December 31: an ambitious goal, but one that will fund incredible learning and reading in our community. Please consider donating to help keep our services free to all New Yorkers in 2015 >>
Notable Artist Autobiographies
The Autobiography of Yayoi Kusama
B Kusama K
In-library use only at this time
in some locations
Annotation:In 1957, encouraged by Georgia O’Keeffe, artist Yayoi Kusama left Japan for New York City. She returned to her home country in 1973 an established leader of New York’s avant-garde movement. Her sculptures, videos, paintings, and installations are to this day included in major international exhibitions. Available for the first time in English, Infinity Net paints a multilayered portrait the artist, from her oppressive childhood in postwar Japan to her present life in the psychiatric hospital where she voluntarily stays and continues to be productive. Kusama’s autobiography offers insight into the persona of mental illness that has informed her work.
