Yayoi Kusama "Give Me Love" @ David Zwirner, NY
Yayoi Kusama has brought her seminal installation from 2002, The Obliteration Room, to David Zwirner in New York. Also on view in two spaces, 519 and 525 West 19th Street, are new paintings from the celebrated My Eternal Soul series and new polka-dotted pumpkin sculptures. Widely recognized around the world, with a recent survey of museum attendance ranking her as the most popular artist in 2014, Kusama has shaped her own narrative of postwar and contemporary art. Minimalism and Pop art, abstraction and conceptualism coincide in her practice, which spans painting, sculpture, performance, room-sized and outdoor installations, the written word, films, fashion, design, and architectural interventions.
