KUSAMA: Princess of Polka Dots is a feature documentary about artist Yayoi Kusama that is now in post-production. The paparazzi nicknamed Kusama the Polka Dot Princess in the 1960s when she lived in New York City. At that time, she rivaled Andy Warhol for press attention. Now in her 80s, Kusama is considered Japan’s greatest living artist. The Tate Modern Museum organized a Kusama retrospective in 2011-2012. As part of the retrospective, we created a short video from our footage that played in the London galleries. To view it, please click here:
In the link below you can see the video as it was uploaded by the Tate (now with over 175,000 views.)
