Mirror, mirror on the wall, what’s the hypest NYC art exhibit of all?
You know, the art installation all your friends have been Instagramming literally all weekend long?
As of this week, it’s most definitely Yayoi Kusama’s New York: Festival of Life at David Zwirner Gallery in Chelsea.
This experience is coming to us straight from a frequently sold-out stint in Los Angeles. Four days in and it’s already Instagram famous!
At the Chelsea space spanning 525 and 533 West 19th Street, two expansive rooms use mirrors and lights to create stunning visions of a space that appears to viewers to go on forever.
In the adjacent With All My Love for the Tulips, I Pray Forever installation, polka-dotted walls provide the backdrop to oversized potted sculptures of the flowers that are also covered in dots, a move that aims to throw off the viewer’s depth perception.
A second exhibit, Infinity Nets, will be on view a little further uptown at 34 East 69th Street on the Upper East Side, and will showcase some equally trippy paintings by the artist.
If a visit leaves you wanting even more of her surreal vibes, the 88-year-old Kusama, who has been shaking up the art world since the 1950s, also has her own museum in Tokyo.
Unfortunately, this dose of infinity isn’t staying forever—you have until December 16 to check it out.
