How Yayoi Kusama Made it in America

Hong Kong | 01 April

Today, Yayoi Kusama is widely celebrated as a towering figure in contemporary art. But behind this lies a powerful story of a tenacious artist with a compelling vision. In this episode of Expert Voices, take an in-depth look at Kusama’s extraordinary journey with Heather Lenz, director and producer of the critically acclaimed documentary Kusama: Infinity. Discover Kusama’s distinctive ability to challenge perception and push boundaries through early works like Interminable Net #4, offered as a highlight of Sotheby’s Contemporary Art Evening Sale in Hong Kong. A precursor to Minimalism made during the height of Abstract Expressionism, Interminable Net #4 exemplifies Kusama’s bold eagerness to articulate her voice in spite of any obstacles or prejudice.
