Thursday is opening day for an installation by French artist Xavier Veilhan. Architectones features abstract and figurative sculptures placed throughout the property of the Richard Neutra VDL Research House.
The wow kicks in early at these exceptional shows at museums uptown and down. First at the Whitney with Yayoi Kusama, next with Bridget Riley's Ghosts in the Machine at the New Museum, and at MoMA's Century of the Child.
At 83 years old, Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama boasts a pioneering oeuvre in many forms of media from the past five decades. Possessing a hallucinatory obsession with dots due to hardships she suffered as a child, Kusama uses art as an outlet.
