Yayoi Kusama: Obsesión InfinitaYayoi Kusama: Obsesión Infinita

Published by Fundación Eduardo F. Costantini.
Edited with text by Philip Larratt-Smith, Frances Morris.

Obsesión Infinita accompanies the first Latin American retrospective of Yayoi Kusama (born 1929), a massive survey of more than 100 works created between 1950 and 2013. It includes her abstract paintings of the 1950s, made just prior to her move to New York in 1957; the "soft sculptures" that followed her move, and her friendships with Donald Judd, Andy Warhol, Claes Oldenburg and Joseph Cornell; and the famous happenings of the late 60s. It was in these years that Kusama became known as "the Polka Dot Princess," for her obsessive use of polka dots in installations and performances. In 1973 she returned to Japan, and in 1977 settled voluntarily in a psychiatric clinic where she has continued to make performances and installations. Alongside color reproductions, this volume includes archival photographs of Kusama performances and portraits of the artist from the many periods of her career.

Yayoi KusamaYayoi Kusama

Published by D.A.P./Tate.
Edited by Frances Morris. Text by Jo Applin, Juliet Mitchell, Mignon Nixon, Midori Yamamura.

Accompanying the first major American retrospective exhibition of Yayoi Kusama's work, and an exhibition at Tate Modern in London, this volume offers a definitive monograph on Japan's most famous living artist. It features a wealth of works from all periods in Kusama's career, as well as essays by various international curators and critics, discussing Kusama's years in New York, her career after her return to Japan, her installation works and the psychoanalytic import of her art. Kusama's originality, innovation and sheer drive to make art have propelled her through a career that has spanned six decades, encompassing painting, sculpture, printmaking, photography, collage, film and video, performance, installation and even product design. From the late 1950s to the early 1970s Kusama lived in New York, and was at the forefront of many artistic innovations in the city, becoming close with artists such as Donald Judd, Andy Warhol, Joseph Cornell and Claes Oldenburg, and influencing many others along the way. It was in these years that Kusama was dubbed "the Polka Dot Princess," for her obsessive use of polka dots in installations and happenings. Returning to Japan in her forties, she rebuilt her career, waiting years for the international recognition that she has recently achieved. Now in her ninth decade, Kusama's imagination remains fertile and productive, as she continues to devise dazzling installations and relentlessly hand-paints her ongoing series of minutely detailed figurative fantasy paintings.
Yayoi Kusama was born in Matsumoto, Japan, in 1929. She left Japan for New York at the age of 28, following a correspondence with Georgia O'Keeffe, and was soon participating in the city's 1960s wave of happenings and avant-garde activities. In 1973, Kusama returned to Japan and began writing surrealistic novels and poetry. On November 12, 2008, Christie's New York sold a work by her for $5.1 million, a record for a living female artist.

Art Povera: 1962-1972

Published by Walker Art Center.
Essays by Francesco Bonami, Giorgia Bottinelli, Germano Celant, Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev, Corinna Criticos, Judith Kirshner, Robert Lumley, Karen Pinkus. Artists include Giovanni Anselmo, Alighiero e Boetti, Giorgia Bottinelli, Pier Paolo Calzolari, Lu

Zero to Infinity: Arte Povera, 1962-1972 focuses on one of the most innovative and influential art movements of the postwar era. Arte Povera came of age in the context of the ''Italian miracle'' economic boom and the subsequent student and workers revolts of 1968, motivated by an urge to revolt not only against the primacy of painting in the postwar period, but also against the emerging consumer culture. This exhibition and its accompanying catalogue provide a highly comprehensive retrospective of the Arte Povera movement as a historical and aesthetic phenomenon that crossed a wide range of disciplines, including sculpture, installation, drawing, photography, film and performance. The exhibition traces Arte Povera's genesis within the artistic and political context of Italy to its positioning within the broader international context of postwar artistic practices, a moment marked by the participation of the Arte Povera group in the 1972 Documenta V exhibition in Kassel. This essential new catalogue is designed by the Walker Art Center's award-winning design department, and includes a wide range of essays by international scholars and curators, as well as rare historical documentation, in an unprecedented re-examination of the Arte Povera movement.
