Starring two major exhibitions, Festival of Life and Infinity Nets…Kusama will display 66 paintings from her My Eternal Soul series, as well as large-scale flower sculptures, a polka-dotted environment, and two Insta-worthy Infinity Mirror Rooms.
The first room, called “Lonely for Eternity,” is decorated in mini light bulbs to create a hexagonal pattern and can only be viewed from a peephole.
Another room incorporates stainless steel orbs, called “Let’s Survive Forever” where visitors can experience the work from within. This is one of the most popular installations.
“With All My Love for the Tulips, I Pray Forever” is an all white room dotted in red featuring three large sculptures of tulips. At first glance the sculptures blend in completely, but once in the room it turns into “a three dimensional phenomenon.”
The Upper East Side gallery will feature Kusama’s Infinity Nets paintings, famous for its thick layers of paint applied with rounded brushes. These paintings are other works are for purchase.
