The work of Yayoi Kusama (Japan, b. 1929) has transcended two of the most significant art movements of the second half of the twentieth century: Pop and Minimalism. Her highly influential career spans paintings, performances, room-size presentations, outdoor sculptural installations, literary works, poetry, film, fashion, design, and interventions within existing architectural structures, which allude at once to microscopic and macroscopic universes.
