Yayoi Kusama: Festival of Life

The Instagram-famous sensation Yayoi Kusama currently has two exhibitions on display at the David Zwirner Art Gallery in both their Chelsea and UES locations until December 16th. The main location in Chelsea includes two infinity mirror rooms, a polka dot experience, and a new My Eternal Soul series featuring sixty-six colorful paintings mixed with large scale flower sculptures. Currently, lines for the exhibition wrap around the block, with some visitors waiting up to four hours (I waited two!) for one minute in each infinity mirror room. I'll admit it really is ludicrous all in the name of a few selfies, but the separate My Eternal Soul exhibit has no lines and is what really caught my eye. The paintings wrap around the room from floor to ceiling creating this kaleidoscope of colors that instantly create a vibrant, cheerful space that will surely be a mood lifter as winter begins to settle in New York.
