Yayoi Kusama: Cosmic Nature
New York Botanical Garden Spring 2021
Rescheduled for the Spring of 2021, the New York Botanical Garden will launch the long-awaited multi-sensory experience by one of the most popular artists in the world, Yayoi Kusama. Experience first hand her profound connection with nature in Kusama: Cosmic Nature.
“Everyone, I hope you will wait” – with all my heart, Yayoi Kusama
Known for drawing millions to her immersive installations, Yayoi Kusama explores the interconnectedness of all living things in her brand new, Infinity Mirrored Room—Illusion Inside the Heart. It’s an immersive outdoor installation that responds to changing light throughout the day and seasons.
With NYBG as the exclusive exhibition venue, Kusama reveals her lifelong fascination with the natural world, beginning with her childhood spent in the greenhouses and fields of her family’s seed nursery. Her intimate engagement with the colors and patterns of plants and flowers inspires artistic concepts of obliteration, infinity, and eternity.
Multiple installations feature Kusama’s multifaceted art, including vibrant paintings of plants and flowers and monumental floral and vegetal sculptures, across NYBG’s 250-acre landmark landscape and buildings.
A timed-entry Infinity Mirrored Room ticket is required to access this immersive installation.
