For the second DC Around the Table Book Group of 2021, we will discuss “Infinity Net: The Autobiography of Yayoi Kusama.”
In 1957, encouraged by Georgia O’Keeffe, artist Yayoi Kusama left Japan for New York City to become a star. By the time she returned to her home country in 1973, she had established herself as a leader of New York’s avant-garde movement, known for creating happenings and public orgies to protest the Vietnam War and for the polka dots that had become a trademark of her work. Her sculptures, videos, paintings, and installations are to this day included in major international exhibitions.
Thank you to Ruth Abrahams, ArtTable DC Committee Member at Large and ArtTable VP of Chapter Leadership for organizing this program.
