Okay all, recently I published some actual accurate information re Asian artists, well accurate being “a listing by sales” but not provable by actual facts that their art was actually paid for .
HOWEVER, YOYAI KUSAMA’S NAME DOES NOT APPEAR ANYWHERE on these lists as ARTNET news reported before AND YET SHE’S DECLARED THE MOST POPULAR ARTIST IN THE WORLD! DOES THE LEFT ARM KNOW WHAT THE RIGHT ELBOW IS DOING?????? at this nutzy ezine?
YOU BE THE JUDGE AFTER YOU READ THE SILLY STUFF THAT IS SAID ABOUT HER . OKAY SHE’S 86, is that the criteria?
The artist Yayoi Kusama has been crowned as the most popular artist in the world according to a survey of museum attendance in 2014. OH IT’S MUSEUM ATTENDANCE! NOW THERE’S INTERNET INFO AT IT’S FINEST!
Besides rejoicing in the marvelous fact that the biggest artist in the world is, in fact, a woman , Kusama’s super powers do not come as a surprise, as the Japanese artist has been long known for drawing large masses to her brilliant exhibitions. REALLY? KNOWN AS QUEEN OF POLKA DOTS?
In fact, the recent South American leg of her traveling retrospective “Infinite Obsession,” which toured across Brazilian cities such Rio de Janeiro, Brasilia, and São Paulo, and then continued to Mexico, was attended by millions of visitors.
THINK ABOUT WHAT DO THE ZILLIONS OF PEOPLE IN THESE EXTREMELY POVERTY STRICKEN CITIES HAVE ANYTHING BETTER TO DO?
The demand for tickets to her show at the Museo Tamayo in Mexico City earlier this year was so great that the museum had to stay open for 36 hours straight during the last two days
But the 86-year old artist is not only a success with the crowds; she also has a red-hot market, which has been boosted even further by her popular worldwide retrospectives
HERE’S HER APPEAL”
She has global appeal, because, honestly, what’s not to like? Her work is easily understood, cute, inoffensive, and a palpable signifier of intellectual and financial currency.
CUTSEY? INOFFENSIVE? AND WHAT IN HELL DOES A SIGNIFIER OF INLETELLCTUAL AND FINANCIAL CURRENCY MEAN? SHE GOT A CURRENCY MINT MACHINE IN HER BASEMENT?
CAN I GO THROW UP NOW?
