Yayoi Kusama is the top-selling female artist in the world, best known for her colorful polka dot and pumpkin-themed designs and her massively popular mirrored infinity rooms. Leaving her native Japan and traveling to the U.S. armed only with supportive qords from Georgia O'keefe, Yayoi Kusama exploded onto the late-'60s art scene. Fighting racism and sexism in an industry dominated by men who unapologetically pilfered from her remarkable body of work, Kusama eventually returned home to voluntarily retire to a mental institution. Luckily, the rest of the world has finally caught up to Kusama's incredible vision, celebrating her massive colorful installations while bringing her newfound acclaim with younger generations. Produced and directed by Heather Lenz. (2018, 80 Min.)
