KUSAMA: COSMIC NATURE
A major exhibition of work by Yayoi Kusama is on view at The New York Botanical Garden through October 31, 2021. Titled KUSAMA: COSMIC NATURE, this presentation explores the artist’s lifelong engagement with nature, and will include multiple installations, from signature mirrored environments and organic forms, to polka-dotted sculptures of flowers and pumpkins, paintings, and a participatory greenhouse installation that will be transformed over the course of the exhibition. Also on display are sketchbooks demonstrating an early fascination with the natural world that continues to inspire Kusama’s work.
