If you live in New York, don’t even think about missing a mind-blowing trio of exhibits by Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama entitled “I Who Have Arrived In Heaven.”  The 3 David Zwirner galleries (on 519, 525 and 533 West 19th Street) have paintings, videos and mirrored room installations that will blow your mind.  In the photo above, you walk into a mirrored room (and please note – there will probably be a wait to enter, but it is worth it!) and colorful tentacles hang from the ceiling.  The mirrored room gives the effect that the tentacles go on forever and as the colors change every few moments, it will definitely make your head expand!

27 new large scale (and extremely trippy) paintings are on display and I didn’t even bother to post close ups because you simply must see this exhibit in person.

A video installation in a mirrored room shows a 1 minute video of Kusama performing her song “A Manhattan Suicide Addict” and it looks as if it goes on to infinity (see the video here).

Video by G.  Art by Yayoi Kusama.

This is the best thing you will see all day (however, this post was made on Veteran’s Day and I know how much Americans love war, so perhaps a video of soldiers being tortured will be leaked and then THAT will be the best video you see all day).

If you live in the New York area, DO NOT MISS, the 3 part Yayoi Kusama exhibit “I Who Have Arrived In Heaven” which is showing at 3 David Zwirner galleries which are located on West 19th Street in New York through December 21, 2013.  This video is just one of the mind blowing parts of the exhibit.  More pictures are coming later, so stay tuned!
