Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama's trademark is polka dots " lots of them, repeated in endless variations in paintings, film, immersive installations, soft sculptures and performance.

Kusama, now in her eighties, has described herself as obsessive, and her work is directly inspired by her hallucinatory visions. While she is in some ways an 'outsider', who chooses to live in a psychiatric institution, she is also Japan's leading contemporary artist.This, the first large exhibition of her work in the UK, is bound to be a riot of colour and pattern.Tate video introducing Yayoi Kusama
