1. "Give Me Love" x Yayoi Kusama at David Zwirner Gallery


This is the second exhibition David Zwirner has presented with works of Yayoi Kusama in New York and tomorrow is the final day to experience "Give Me Love." This exhibition combines minimalism and pop art, abstraction and conceptualism spanning paintings, sculpture and a room-sized installation. Kusama is known for her iconic polka dots and interactive environments that break the borders between the art, the artist and its viewers.

David Zwirner gallery hosts the first "The obliteration room" in the United States, an all-white interior covered by dots of different sizes and colors, where visitors are given a set of stickers to share in the transformative process of altering the space. 

The gallery is open tomorrow from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Mary Boone Gallery presents a curated exhibition by Piper Marshall of the works by Angela Bulloch, "Topology: No Holes, Four Tails."

The installation offers five of Bulloch's human-size pieces constructed by her signature Pixel Boxes and most recent polyhedral units, through emitting light and featuring shifts of color values.

The kaleidoscopic variations of forty hues of different color travel up and down the modular cubes and generate flashing light, reflective of the experience similar to changing the television channels or surfing the Internet.

This optical engagement is on view at the gallery's location in Chelsea and will be through June 27.
