Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama has become a legend in her own right, standing alongside legendary 21st-century names, including Picasso, Basquiat, and more. The impactful creative is now returning to New York City for her largest exhibition to date, collaborating with gallerist David Zwirner for its debut.
Located at West 19th Street in Chelsea, the showcase runs across three rooms that review Kusama’s most impactful work. The 94-year-old artist will receive lines around the block as the first-come, first-serve exhibition unveils her trademark pumpkins, maximalist flower sculptures, and an enchanting “Infinity Room.”
As Kusama’s captivating exhibition continues, 35 new EVERY DAY I PRAY FOR LOVE paintings are presented with her recognizable speckled decor. The artist’s Dreaming of Earth’s Sphericity, I Would Offer My Love infinity room is one of her most extensive, built inside an abstract box with geometrical windows that welcome natural light and a petite door opening. Finally, her monstrous flowers and signature pumpkins close the show, designed with exposed walkways for viewers to navigate.
