Give Me Love

An exhibition of new work by Yayoi Kusama will be presented at David Zwirner in New York in fall 2019. To receive exclusive updates about this exhibition, subscribe to our newsletter.

David Zwirner is pleased to present Give Me Love, the gallery's second exhibition with Yayoi Kusama in New York. On view in two spaces, 519 and 525 West 19th Street, will be new paintings from the celebrated My Eternal Soul series, new polka-dotted pumpkin sculptures, and the artist's seminal installation The Obliteration Room from 2002.

Widely recognized around the world, with a recent survey of museum attendance ranking her as the most popular artist in 2014, Kusama has shaped her own narrative of postwar and contemporary art. Minimalism and Pop art, abstraction and conceptualism coincide in her practice, which spans painting, sculpture, performance, room-sized and outdoor installations, the written word, films, fashion, design, and architectural interventions.
