Yayoi Kusama at MoMA PS1's "Rockaway!"
on 19 June 2018
Yes, Yayoi Kusama's "Narcissus Garden" at MoMA PS1's "Rockaway! 2018" installation will be a social media sensation, as is everything the artist does these days. The work, which debuted back in 1966, will feature 1,500 mirrored stainless steel spheres—this time placed in the former train garage along the beach. It's a spectacular setting for an artist known for visual splendor. But there's more at play here: "Rockaway!" is a free public art festival that celebrates the recovery of the Rockaway Peninsula following Hurricane Sandy—and stimulates further recovery. It's a valuable program in a destination of great importance to NYC. Find out more at MoMA.
