Yayoi Kusama overcame impossible odds to bring her radical artistic vision to the world stage: a dysfunctional family, sexism and racism in the art world, and the turmoil of mental illness. In spite of it all, she has persevered, creating a legacy of groundbreaking artwork for over six decades. Now, record numbers of selfie-takers and social media influencers experience her iconic Infinity Mirror Rooms even as she continues making new work daily at the age of 90.

Join us at the Museum of Science for an one-night-only screening of the astonishing story of Yayoi Kusama and how she became one of the top-selling female visual artists today. Featuring introduction by and Q&A with Reto Thüring, Beal Family Chair of the Department of Contemporary Art at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.

All SubSpace programs at the Museum of Science are for audiences 18+.
