In celebration of Yayoi Kusama’s past retrospective at the Whitney Museum of American Art earlier this year, two off-site projects took place. In one of them Kusama’s rhythmic dotted “Yellow Tree motif transformed a construction site in the Meatpacking District in Manhattan into a giant canvas. A detail of the original painting Yellow Trees (1994) has been printed onto special mesh netting and wrapped around the building. The large-scale (150 feet wide by 120 feet high) reproduction applies patterns to the surface of the canvas, often using strong linear gestures to give a sense of space along with jarring visual contrast.

Yayoi Kusama was born in Matsumoto, Japan in 1929. She lives and works in Tokyo.
