          KUSAMA: Cosmic Nature
          The New York Botanical Garden
          Through October 31, 2021

          A landmark exhibition at The New York Botanical Garden spread across its 250-acre landscape, KUSAMA: Cosmic Nature celebrates Yayoi Kusama’s lifelong fascination with the natural world and features monumental polka-dotted sculptures of flowers and pumpkins, signature mirrored environments and organic forms, and a greenhouse installation that will be transformed over the course of the presentation by visitors.

          The artist also debuts a new Infinity Mirrored Room experience that responds to the varying light throughout the day and seasons. This career-spanning presentation coincided with the first comprehensive retrospective of Kusama’s work in Germany, which closed August 15, 2021 at Gropius Bau, Berlin. Tate Modern, London, is presenting Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirror Rooms through June 12, 2022.

          A large tentacled red and blue statue with a yellow sun-like face and white polka dots on its tentacles seems to hover above a reflecting pool, its image mirrored in the water. A mix of trees can be seen in the background.
