Tampa Collects presents a special FREE Community Screening of the visually arresting new documentary, Kusama: Infinity, sponsored by Bank of America.
Now the top-selling female artist in the world, Yayoi Kusama overcame impossible odds to bring her radical artistic vision to the world stage. For decades, her work pushed boundaries that often alienated her from both her peers and those in power in the art world. Kusama: Infinity explores artist Yayoi Kusama’s journey from a conservative upbringing in Japan to her brush with fame in America during the 1960s (where she rivaled Andy Warhol for press attention), through the the international fame she has finally achieved within the art world, and into the fragile circumstances of her life today.
Doors open at 7p. Screening starts at 7:30p.
