Yayoi Kusama at/en el Museo Rufino Tamayo

Yayoi Kusama (草間 彌生 or 弥生 Kusama Yayoi?, born March 22, 1929) is a Japanese artist and writer. Throughout her career she has worked in a wide variety of media, including painting, collage, sculpture, performance art, and environmental installations, most of which exhibit her thematic interest in psychedelic colors, repetition and pattern. 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.

Yayoi Kusama. Obsesión Infinita es la primera muestra retrospectiva en América Latina de una de las artistas japonesas más relevantes de nuestro tiempo. La exposición presenta un recorrido exhaustivo a través de más de 100 obras creadas entre 1950 y 2013, que incluyen pinturas, trabajos en papel, esculturas, videos, slideshows e instalaciones. Se presenta la trayectoria de la artista desde el ámbito privado a la esfera pública, desde la pintura al performance, del estudio a la calle.
