Artwork

Yayoi Kusama's groundbreaking work has mesmerised audiences since her first exhibitions in New York in the 1960s. Known for working in a broad range of media - including painting, performance, sculpture, and installation - in recent decades she has risen to worldwide fame through the explosive popularity of her mesmerising infinity mirror rooms and vibrant sculptural installations. Yet the critical importance of botanical imagery and the artist's interest in nature in Kusama's art has been under-represented in American exhibitions to date. Through examination of works from Kusama's adolescence to the present, this landmark exhibition at the New York Botanical Garden, and the accompanying catalogue, will trace the artist's recurring engagement with natural forms and her surrealist exploration of biomorphism, patterns of accumulation inspired by organic growth, and visions of the boundlessness of the living universe. Integrating horticulture and art ranging from the artist's early sketches to monumental, immersive works making their debut at NYBG, this exhibition will explore the profound impact of the natural world through new, critical perspectives on Kusama's philosophy of life.
