Yu Kanki

About this event
Yu Kanki will present the relationships between art and feminism in New York in the Sixties and Seventies and, in particular, the political aspects and feminist symbols in Kusama’s work. The comparision between the Japanese artist’s work, the feminist struggles and the artists from that movement such as Carolee Schneemann will reveal the originality and the influence of Yayoi Kusama on a new generation of female artists.

Yu Kanki is a graduate in Art History from the Catholic University of Louvain-La-Neuve and a specialist of the art of Yayoi Kusama.
