Yayoi Kusama’s art has consistently revealed her obsessions as well as the concerns that she has with her own body and mind. For more than 60 years, she has used a variety of media, including performance, installation, painting, and film, to explore themes and ideas that consume her. Kusama’s work has recently seen a resurgence of interest through social media captures of her captivating Infinity Mirror Rooms, mirrored environments that are as photogenic as they are experiential. In conjunction with the exhibition Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors, scholars and catalogue contributors Midori Yamamura, Miwako Tezuka, and Gloria Sutton come together to discuss the history and lasting legacy of the artist.
