Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama’s vast body of work includes sculpture, installations, painting, performance, film, fashion and poetry, though she is most well known for her abstract dot paintings and mirror/infinity rooms. This documentary is about the now 88-year-old’s turbulent quest to become famous by creating the art she loved. It follows Kusama from her early life in a regional city, her early correspondence with Georgia O’Keeffe, and her joining the New York art world. In America she battled sexism and racism before returning to Tokyo, and her home in a mental institution for over 30 years. Interviews, old videos, archival photographs and letters help bring the trailblazing artist to life.
