A multisensory presentation of the artist’s connection with nature.

About

Coming spring 2020, experience this multisensory presentation of the work of internationally celebrated Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama. With NYBG as the exclusive venue, this exhibition is designed to capture and illuminate the artist’s profound engagement with nature throughout the changing seasons from spring through fall.

Across NYBG’s 250-acre landmark landscape and buildings, Kusama’s lifelong fascination with the natural world will be revealed in depth with multiple installations, including her signature mirrored environments and organic forms, polka-dotted sculptures of colossal flora, mesmerizing nature-based paintings, biomorphic collages, works on paper, botanical sketches, as well as a spectacular horticultural showcase in the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory. The exhibition will also present brand-new works created by the legendary artist specifically for NYBG, including a monumental site-specific pumpkin sculpture and her first-ever participatory greenhouse installation that will be transformed over the course of the exhibition.
