Through 14 December 2019
The new Yayoi Kusama exhibition at the David Zwirner gallery features sculptures, paintings and an immersive installation by this influential 21st-century artist.
The exhibition introduces new paintings in the artist’s iconic My Eternal Soul series. Created in a more intimate format on view for the first time in the United States, these works are singular explorations of line and form. Minutely detailed, yet with bold explorations of color, they are at once abstract and figurative. Framed by the paintings and addressing a similar dialectic is a large, new floor-based constellation composed of almost a hundred different stainless-steel elements. Viewers navigate an all-encompassing environment of organic-looking, cloud-like forms whose reflections envelop its audience and reinforce an impression of perpetuity and infinity.
The exhibition is on view at the David Zwirner Gallery at 537 West 20th Street through 14 December 2019.
