Watch This: KUSAMA'S SELF-OBLITERATION, a 1967 Film Portrait of Artist Yayoi Kusama


One of the big, exciting cultural events of the year is happening in a city a few hours to our east, the city is called Houston and the event is an exhibition of Yayoi Kusama's dazzling, colorful "infinity rooms." You can read the description here on MFAH's page. You need a damn good reason to visit Houston in the summer and this is it. The exhibition begins on June 12 and runs through September 18.

In the meantime, watch this 1967 film by New York Avant-gardist Jud Yalkut which documents, in a frenetic way, Kusama's early art techniques. It's a happening thing, as they used to say.

Get ready, and go:
