Film/Still: Kusama – Infinity

Nov 28, 2018


The Museum partners with Alamo Drafthouse Cinema to present groundbreaking films that address an array of themes about art and the human experience.

Artist Yayoi Kusama said she climbed to the top of the Empire State Building on her first day in New York, looked down upon the city, made a decision to stand out from everyone she saw below—and become a star. Kusama – Infinity explores Kusama’s journey from a conservative upbringing in Japan to her brush with fame in America in the 1960s—when she rivaled Andy Warhol for press attention—and concludes with the international fame she has now achieved in the art world.
