Raw Femme, MGM Resorts Art & Culture, and the Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art, are pleased to announce a free screening of the feature-length documentary Kusama: Infinity on September 28 at 4 p.m. at the Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV). The event will be followed by a special Q&A with the film’s director Heather Lenz and Raw Femme founder Amanda 'Rawky' Lozano.
Kusama: Infinity details the life and legacy of celebrated Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama, now the top-selling female artist in the world. Despite growing up in Japan during World War II and struggles with mental illness, she rose to fame after becoming the first Japanese woman to exhibit at the 45th Venice Biennale in 1993. Her globally-renowned work spans the disciplines of painting, sculpture, installation art, performance art, poetry and literary fiction.
This screening follows an exhibition of two installations by Kusama at the Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art, Narcissus Garden and Aftermath of Obliteration of Eternity, which ran from November 2018 to April 2019. This marked the first time that the artist presented any works in Las Vegas.
