Yayoi Kusama by Laura J Hoptman( Book )

12 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 623 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama (b.1929) has pursued her principal themes of infinity, self-representation, sexuality and compulsive repetition since she took the New York art world by storm in the late 1950s with her 'Infinity Nets': a series of heroically-scaled paintings covered in endlessly repetitive net-like patterns, which won the admiration of artists ranging from Barnett Newman to the discriminating Donald Judd. In Kusama's installations and sculptures she compulsively covers every surface, either in polka dots (Infinity Mirror Room, 1965), mirrors (Endless Love Show, 1966) or phallus-like protrusions (Violet Obsession, 1994). This book signifies the first ever monograph on the astounding 40-year career of this established, deeply daring and tirelessly experimental artist, who represented Japan at the Venice Biennale in 1993. It was published to coincide with an exhibition in 2000 at the Serpentine Gallery. Overall, Kusama is internationally respected for her soft sculptures and psychedelic installations, through which she also explores themes of love and obsession throughout her work, in all its diversity: from her net-like pattern paintings begun in 1959, to her Pop-inspired love happenings in the 1960s, to installations whose every surface has been completed boundlessly by a complex but always distinct pattern. A visionary whose work is unique in the panorama of post-war art, Kusama is known not only as an artist but also as a fashion designer, poet, novelist and film-maker -- all documented in this uniquely comprehensive monograph. American art historian and Museum of Modern Art curator Laura Hoptman examines in her Survey the gradual transitions in the artist's work, from painting to performance to installation, in the context of her international artistic contemporaries. Japanes poet and critic Akira Tatehata discusses with the artist her own evolving relationship with her work and how it is received in Eastern and Western contexts. German-born art historian Udo Kultermann focuses on the artist's seminal installation work Driving Image (1959-64), which he exhibited in Essen, Germany, in 1966. For Artist's Choice, the artist has selected tanka poems by Takuboku Ishikawa (1886-1912), a renowned Japanese poet who, like Kusama, combined the expression of personal suffering with great formal innovations in his work
Lee Ufan : marking infinity by U-hwan Yi( Book )

5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The first North American museum retrospective devoted to artist, philosopher, and poet Lee Ufan (b. 1936, Korea), Lee Ufan: Marking Infinity charts Lee's creation of a visual, conceptual, and theoretical language that has radicalized and expanded the possibilities for sculpture and painting. Deeply versed in modern philosophy, Lee is an influential writer on aesthetics and contemporary art and is recognized as the key theorist of Mono-ha, an antiformalist, materials-based art movement that developed in Tokyo in the late 1960s"--Jacket
Yayoi Kusama : I who have arrived in heaven by Yayoi Kusama( Book )

6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Overview: Yayoi Kusama: I Who Have Arrived in Heaven features new work from the artist's critically acclaimed 2013 inaugural exhibition at David Zwirner, which spanned the gallery's three locations in New York. Kusama's extraordinary and highly influential career spans paintings, performances, room-size presentations, outdoor sculptural installations, literary works, films, fashion, design and interventions within existing architectural structures. Opening this book is a series of exquisitely produced color plates of brightly colored, large-format square paintings. Part of a recent body of work, they allude to universal spheres or basic life forms and highlight Kusama's unique amalgamation of representational and nonrepresentational subject matter. Also featured is the video installation, Song of a Manhattan Suicide Addict, in which the artist herself is seen performing a song she composed while an animated slideshow of selected artworks moves behind her and the two mirrored infinity rooms. Infinity Mirrored Room-The Souls of Millions of Light Years Away encompassed a cube-shaped, mirror-paneled room that featured a shallow reflecting pool as its floor; hundreds of multicolored LED lights were suspended at varying heights from the ceiling, flickering on and off in a strobelike effect. Another mirrored infinity room, Love Is Calling, stands as one of Kusama's most immersive, kaleidoscopic environments to date. It was composed of a darkened, mirrored room illuminated by inflatable, tentacle-like forms-covered in the artist's characteristic polka dots--that extended from the floor and ceiling, gradually changing colors
Yayoi Kusama : give me love by Yayoi Kusama( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Yayoi Kusama: Give Me Love documents the artist's most recent exhibition at David Zwirner, New York, which marked the US debut of The Obliteration Room, an all-white, domestic interior that viewers are invited to cover with dot stickers of various sizes and colors. Taking The Obliteration Roomas its centerpiece, this catalogue reveals, in vivid large-scale plates, the transformation of the space from a clean white interior to a stunningly saturated room, with ceilings, walls, and furniture covered in myriad multicolored stickers put there by viewers over the course of the exhibition. The catalogue also includes beautiful reproductions of Kusama's new large-format paintings from My Eternal Soul series. Ranging from bright and densely pixelated forms, to umber figures with darker blues and muted oranges, these paintings demonstrate the artist's striking command of color, and her exceptional control over balance and contrast. Bold brushstrokes hover between figuration and abstraction; vibrant, animated, and intense, these paintings introduce their own powerful pictorial logic, at once contemporary and universal. The catalogue continues with a selection of new, large Pumpkinsculptures, a form that Kusama has been exploring since her studies in Japan in the 1950s, and which gained prominence in the 1980s, continuing to remain an essential part of her practice. Made of shiny stainless steel and featuring painted dots or dot-shaped perforations that recall The Obliteration Room, these immersive works seem created on human scale, with the tallest measuring 70 inches (178 cm). Vibrant plates capture how color, shape, size, and surface merge in these sculptures and mesmerize the viewer. Texts include a "Hymn to Yayoi Kusama" by art critic and poet Akira Tatehata and a poem by the artist herself." from the publisher's website

Kusama is internationally renowned for her groundbreaking work on themes such as infinity, self-image, sexuality, and compulsive repetition. A well-known name in the Manhattan scene of the 1960s, Kusama's subsequent work combined Psychedelia and Pop culture with patterning, often resulting in participatory installations and series of paintings. This revised and expanded edition of the 2000 monograph, which is arguably still one of the most comprehensive studies on her work to date, has been augmented by an essay by Catherine Taft and a collection of new poems by the artist

Yayoi Kusama by Yayoi Kusama( Book )

3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ceci est une monographie sur l'extraordinaire carrière de 40 ans du sculpteur et performeur japonais Yayoi Kusama, qui a récemment fait l'objet d'une grande rétrospective au Museum of Modern Art de New York, qui a tourné aux États-Unis et au Japon jusqu'en 1999. En janvier-mars 2000 Serpentine Gallery, Londres présentera une grande exposition personnelle consacrée à l'ouvre de Kusama. Reconnu internationalement pour ses sculptures douces et ses installations psychédéliques, Kusama explore des thèmes d'amour, d'infinité et d'obsession tout au long de son travail, de ses peintures en réseau commencées en 1959 à ses happenings d'amour pop dans les années 1960, en passant par des installations où la surface a été compulsivement couverte de polka-points, de miroirs ou de protubérances en forme de phallus. Visionnaire dont le travail est unique dans le panorama de l'art d'après-guerre, Yayoi Kusama est connue non seulement en tant qu'artiste mais aussi en tant que créatrice de mode, poète et romancière, tous documentés dans cette monographie complète
