In partnership with MGM Resorts Art & Culture and the UNLV Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art, we are thrilled 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.
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. The documentary gives viewers an intimate insight in the life and work of Kusama, through the eyes of #filmmaker Heather Lenz.
The 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 #LasVegas.
The event would not have been possible without the support from our incredible partners, MGM Resorts Art & Culture and the Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art. We are beyond appreciative of their encouragement and contributions in helping bring this event to our community.
