Kusama: Infinity - FREE // Mental Health Series
Tickets: FREE (maximum of two per person)
Trace the tumultuous and triumphant journey of Yayoi Kusama, the “Infinity Mirrors” visionary who overcame mental health struggles to become the biggest-selling female artist in the world. Emerging as a rival to Andy Warhol in the ‘60s, the Japanese artist battled with childhood trauma, prejudice and depression, voluntarily spending over three decades living in a Tokyo psychiatric hospital and using art therapy as a way to cope. Kusama: Infinity beautifully delves into her astonishingly prolific career, the influence of her dazzling polka-dotted visions—which she describes as “art medicine”—and the power of embracing weirdness.
Followed by a Q&A with special guests and subject matter experts.
In recognition of the potentially triggering content of the participating films, supportive listeners will be present at each screening.
In partnership with Bell Let's Talk and Workman Arts.
