Verge Center for the Arts is hosting a showing of Kusama Infinity, which follows the life and impact of Yayoi Kusama, the top-selling female artist in the entire world. Kusama has been a titan in the art world for six decades. Initially cast out by her peers and the powers that be in the art world, Kusama proved to be a visionary and an inspirational influence with her radical artistic ways, fueled by the vastness that is her mind. Kusama’s résumé is remarkably diverse: painting, installation art, literary fiction, sculpture, poetry and performance art and her mirrored “infinity rooms” have been featured around the globe. This film screening will take place on Thursday, Jan. 17 at the Verge Center for the Arts at 625 S St., Sacramento. The doors will open at 7 p.m. and the film will begin at 7:30. Tickets are $9 for general admission, $7 for students and seniors (65-and-over) and free for Verge members. There will be free popcorn (because what is a movie without popcorn?) and a cash bar.
