Yayoi Kusama: Cosmic Nature

Yayoi Kusama’s ground-breaking work has mesmerized 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 mesmerizing infinity mirror rooms and vibrant sculptural installations. Plant and landscape imagery are also inextricably woven into Kusama’s art practice and writings, and many of the artist’s earliest memories and artworks stem from her formative experiences surrounded by flowers and plants in the greenhouses of her maternal family’s seed nursery. 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.
