Movie Info

Now the top-selling female artist in the world, Yayoi Kusama overcame countless odds to bring her radical artistic vision to the world stage. For decades, her work pushed boundaries that often alienated her from her peers and those in power in the art world. Kusama was an underdog with everything stacked against her-the trauma of growing up in Japan during World War II, life in a dysfunctional family that discouraged her creative ambitions, sexism and racism in the art establishment, mental illness in a culture where that was a particular shame, and eventually growing old and continuing to pursue and be devoted to her art full time. In spite of it all, Kusama has endured and has created a legacy of artwork that spans the disciplines of painting, sculpture, installation art, performance art, poetry, and novels. After working as an artist for over six decades, people around the globe are experiencing her Infinity Mirrored Rooms in record numbers, as Kusama continues to create new work every day.

Critic Reviews for Kusama: Infinity

All Critics (48) | Top Critics (8)

"Kusama: Infinity" is a fascinating guide to its subject and her work, but the emotional wall Kusama lives behind remains unbroken. She is a loner and a mystery.

September 12, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

The film offers insight and eye candy, despite the fact that it is far more traditional - in style and format - than its subject.

September 12, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

There's something oddly comforting about such a person serving as the subject for a documentary this respectful, and traditional.

September 11, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Part talent, part hustle, part pathological insistence on her own way of dealing with the world, it's an optimistic narrative with plenty of colorful guest stars, and should have a slightly broader appeal than the usual art-world portrait.

September 6, 2018 | Full Review…

"Kusama - Infinity," while conventionally structured, provides ample, illuminating access to an artist's way of thinking and working.

September 6, 2018 | Full Review…

A genuinely felt portrait of the artist as a dedicated survivor, ever in service to her vision of the world and fighting for her place in it.
