Yayoi Kusama
Paperback. 208 pp. 200 color ill. 27.5 x 22 cm. Tate Publishing, 2011.
This lavishly illustrated catalogue accompanied the exhibition Yayoi Kusama presented at the Whitney Museum during July-September 2012. Published by the Tate, the book features an introductory essay by curator Frances Morris as well as four other substantial essays by leading international critics. Topics explored include Kusama's important time in New York, her career after her return to Japan, her installation works and an exploration of her art from a psychoanalytical point of view.

Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama (b. 1929) is arguably Japan's most famous living artist. Her originality, innovation and powerful desire to communicate have propelled her through a career that has spanned six decades. During this time, Kusama has explored painting, sculpture, printmaking, photography, collage, film and video, performance and installation, as well as product design. The Whitney's Collection includes three works by Kusama.
