Yayoi Kusama : The Polka Dot Princess( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 251 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 182 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

Yayoi Kusama by Laura J Hoptman( Book )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and Japanese and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 105 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

Disney's The little mermaid by H. C Andersen( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and Japanese and held by 50 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

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
