Yayoi Kusama : The Polka Dot Princess( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Yayoi Kusama, 83, is a self-proclaimed genius who wears signature red polka-dot clothes and is one of few Japanese artists who have achieved worldwide celebrity. In 2012 the Tate Modern in London mounted a major retrospective, the first time such treatment has ever been accorded an Asian artist. Simultaneously, Kusama's collaborated with a top fashion brands to sell products bearing her polka-dot designs. Kusama herself may trigger cascades of camera flashes when she goes out, but her home for the past four decades has been a psychiatric hospital. While struggling with illness she has managed to pursue her creative life seriously and energetically. This program gives us a fascinating peek into her complex, productive lifestyle
Yayoi Kusama : Infinity Mirror Room - Phalli's Field by Jo Applin( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Almost a half-century after Yayoi Kusama debuted her landmark installation 'Infinity Mirror Room - Phalli's Field' (1965) in New York, the work remains challenging and unclassifiable. Jo Applin looks at the installation in detail and places it in the context of subsequent art practice and theory as well as Kusama's own (as she called it) 'obsessional art'. This title is part of the 'One Work' book series, which focuses on the artworks that have significantly shaped the way we understand art and its history
Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll( Book )

Louis Vuitton city bags : a natural history by Jean-Claude Kaufmann( Book )

5 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume is an unprecedented history of Louis Vuitton's women's bags, the most coveted line of accessories in women's fashion. At the heart of Louis Vuitton are its City Bags, a range of women's bags that dates back to the turn of the twentieth century. Featuring the trademark monograms of the house, the City Bag story began with the Steamer, a resort bag designed in 1901 to be packed inside a much larger steamer trunk. These bags have in a hundred years formally diversified into a dizzying array of handbags for every conceivable function demanded by the modern woman. Profoundly influential, City Bags are now known to millions by their descriptive names (Keepall, Bucket, Papillon, Alma, Locket, Noe, Speedy) and are still evolving into more fantastical forms. Lavishly illustrated with new and archival photography, historical graphics, landmark editorials, and ad campaigns, the volume traces the history of these specific bag families, and examines the earliest specimens and today's most sought-after collectibles, including Vuitton's collaborations with Takashi Murakami, Stephen Sprouse, Richard Prince, Yayoi Kusama, and Rei Kawakubo and one-off projects by Zaha Hadid, Shigeru Ban, Vivienne Westwood, Helmut Lang, Andrée Putman, and of course, Marc Jacobs. Louis Vuitton: City Bags is an ambitious volume on the creation and cultivation of a cultural phenomenon."--Publisher's website

Yayoi Kusama by Yayoi Kusama( Book )

13 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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. From the late 1950s to the early 1970s Kusama lived in New York and was at the forefront of many artistic innovations in the city. Returning to Japan in her forties, she rebuilt her career, waiting years for the international recognition she has recently achieved. Now in her eightieth year, she continues to make art, extending the range of her large-scale, dazzling installations and relentlessly hand-painting extensive series of minutely detailed figurative fantasy paintings. Kusama has exhibited widely around the world, including representing Japan at the Venice Biennale, and her work is in many major collections. Accompanying the first major retrospective exhibition of the artist's work to be staged in the UK, this lavishly illustrated book features an introductory essay by Tate curator Frances Morris as well as four other substantial essays by leading international critics. Topics covered include Kusama's 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
The Little Mermaid : a fairy tale of infinity & love forever by H. C Andersen( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tale 'The Little Mermaid' (1839), a story about a girl from the sea who followed her dreams and suffered a disastrous fate on land, is known all over the world (particularly in its animated incarnation). But the familiar story is brought to new life in this gorgeous edition, a collaboration between the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art and artist Yayoi Kusama. Paired with Hans Christian Andersen's original text, the densely patterned, undulating line drawings of Kusama's Love Forever series (2004-2007) conjure up storms in the roiling waves of the ocean, the Little Mermaid's vast underwater kingdom and her longing to live in the human world. Kusama's fertile, endlessly repeating forms are an ideal match for the poetic and disturbing universe evoked in the fairy tale; the result is a true collaboration. Kusama's drawings both illustrate and interpret Andersen's story, bringing it to terrifying life, and Andersen's words lend narrative content to Kusama's landscapes of unblinking eyes, curling tendrils and disembodied profiles

Yayoi Kusama by Yayoi Kusama( Book )

9 editions published in 2011 in Spanish and French and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La exposición muestra a Kusama como una artista irreductible y esencial en las nuevas narraciones globales del arte contemporáneo y refleja el rol crucial desempeñado por Kusama en el arte de posguerra desde una posición excéntrica: por un lado, se aproxima al pop, a los nuevos realismos y al feminismo en sus instalaciones y faceta pública; por otro, su empleo de la repetición, del monocromo y de la retícula tienen que ver a la vez con la obsesión y la enfermedad mental

Manhattan suicide addict by Yayoi Kusama( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in French and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Yayoi Kusama, on la savait excentrique, on la découvre scandaleuse, incorrecte, embarrassante mais sacrément juste et nécessaire. Publié pour la première fois en 1978, à son retour à Tokyo après un long exil volontaire à New York, Manhattan suicide addict n'avait jusqu'alors connu de traduction. Il est presque compréhensible que personne n'ait voulu se lancer dans la traduction d'un tel brûlot qui met à mal, non seulement le puritanisme américain, protestant et honteux, mais surtout la bonne forme, par la totale incorrection du propos et sa manière - précise et onirique à la fois, factuelle jusqu'à l'hyperréalisme et délirante simultanément. C'est l'histoire d'une artiste d'avant-garde qui tourne mal, qui s'affiche en Pimp Kusama, fournissant à l'élite médiatico-intellectuelle (des deux sexes) une cohorte de jeunes éphèbes gay en rupture de famille. Mais c'est aussi l'histoire d'une souffrance, d'une jeune femme en proie à un syndrome narcissique avec dépersonnalisation et hallucinations que l'usage immodéré de drogues en tous genres apaise (et/ou accentue?).L'histoire d'une réécriture des années 60 à l'aune d'un Japon étouffant qui malgré tout accueillit sa prose et la célèbra
