About the event
Yayoi Kusama is one of the foremost artists of our time. Born in Japan and later working in the United States, she broke ground in a range of artistic formats – painting, sculpture, installation art, and performance. In November, the Hirshhorn will host an exhibition of Kusama’s work, which has received record attendance at the Hirshborn (2017), The Tate Museum in London, and the New York Botanical Gardens. This is an advance opportunity for C100 members to discover the artist prior to her exhibition.
Nancy is the founder of Dial-a-Docent, an independent group of docents who have offered hundreds of online conversations about modern and contemporary art during the pandemic. She has been a docent at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden for five years. She is also a docent at Smithsonian American Art Museum and a volunteer at the National Gallery of Art.
