9 February - 5 June. The work of Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama is the subject of a major exhibition at the Tate Modern.

Considered Japan's most famous artist, Kusama's artistic career spans almost six decades and incorporates movements such as feminism, minimalism, surrealism, pop art and abstract expressionism.

Her vivid art encompasses a wide variety of media, including painting, drawing, sculpture, film, performance and installation, and ranges from intense semi-abstract imagery, such as her repeated dot patterns, to her Accumulation sculptures and Infinity nets.

Born in 1929, Kusama has lived voluntarily in a psychiatric institution since 1977, and much of her work has been characterised by obsessiveness and paranoia.

In 2008, Christies New York sold a drawing by her for $5.1 million, at the time a record for a living female artist.
