LOVE FOREVER: YAYOI KUSAMA, 1958-1968. Lynn Zelevansky et al. Los Angeles County Museum of Art, 1998. Organized in association with Japan Foundation, Tokyo, and Museum of Modern Art, New York. Distributed by D.A.P./Distributed Art Publishers, New York. 196 pp. with 185 ills. (119 col., one foldout). 30 x 22 cm. LC 97-75136 ISBN 087587181X In English.
Surveying the influential body of work produced by Japanese avant-garde artist Kusama (b. 1929) during the first decade of her residence in New York, this catalogue highlights more than 80 diverse works dating from 1958 to 1967 that include large-scale monochromatic paintings characterized by all-over polka-dot or net patterns, grid-based collages of self-adhesive mailing labels, fetishistic sculptures in which household furnishings or articles of clothing are variously encrusted with stuffed phallic forms, macaroni and dried flowers, and examples of the idiosyncratic performance pieces that dominated the artist's output of the late 1960s. Four essays include a substantial critical overview of Kusama's New York period and discussions of her formative years in Japan, her links with Yves Klein, Piero Manzoni and other European artists associated with the "New Tendency" movement of the 1960s and the psychologically charged novels published by the artist since her return to Japan in the mid-1970s.
