Kusama Blooms at the New York Botanical Garden

by Travel Outdoors

In 1973, years before Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity Mirrors began to draw serpentine lines, leading many to christen her the “Most Popular Artist in the World,” the artist left New York to return to Japan. She had spent fifteen years in the city, trying to build an art career that was constantly undercut by mediocre white artists, in addition to being scorned for her nude protests against the Vietnam War. This spring, some of her artworks are returning to the city for a presentation at the New York Botanical Gardens, amid the lush greenery of the Bronx institution. Opening this Saturday (April 10) and continuing through Halloween, Kusama: Cosmic Nature celebrates the artist’s work and the joy of witnessing her creative energy after a year of loss and grieving.
