Renowned artist to exhibit at NY’s botanic gardens

The New York Botanical Garden (NYBG) will feature the work of internationally celebrated Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama as its major exhibition in 2020.

Running from 2 May through to 1 November, the works will cover the spectrum of Kusama’s multifaceted practice and introduce major new works, including immersive experiences created specifically for this exhibition.

Kusama’s engagement with nature will be represented in depth with multiple installations, including her signature mirrored environments and organic forms, colossal polka-dotted sculptures of flowers and pumpkins, mesmerising paintings, and her first-ever participatory greenhouse installation that will be transformed over the course of the exhibition. Also on display will be early sketchbooks portending Kusama’s lifelong fascination with the natural world that continues to inspire her aesthetic.

The exhibition will be installed across NYBG’s 250-acre landscape and in its historic buildings. NYBG is 20 minutes from midtown Manhattan.
