Yayoi Kusama Kusama's Self Obliteration 1968

© Yayoi Kusama Studio Inc.

Highly regarded for her politically charged performances and public ‘happenings’, Yayoi Kusama has consistently integrated her own image within her work and has regularly appeared before the camera since the 1960s. Viewed by critics as both a feminist visionary and a prolific self-promoter, Kusama’s indelible image is presented in films including Kusama’s Self-Obliteration 1968, Love-In Festival 1968, Flower Orgy 1968 and Song of a Manhattan Suicide Addict 1999.

Tate Film presents inspiring films, videos, installations and performances made by artists and filmmakers who seek to challenge the conventions of the moving image. See the full Tate Film programme.
