Opens today: Yayoi Kusama’s Narcissus Garden at Philip Johnson’s Glass House

May 1, 2016

 

Yayoi Kusama’s Narcissus Garden at Glass House opens today…

YOUR NARCISSISM IS FOR SALE: The idea behind Kusuma’s work is more than allegorical of present times, but she saw it coming.

Kusuma Narcissus Garden

Set aside the politic and struggles of the client/ user of Glass House, this is still a work that brings us to question ourselves – if we want to.

Philip Johnson’s work, more in focus because of the discussion around closing of MoMA’s Architecture and Design galleries, in some way, curiously signalled more works like Glass House being celebrated and created at an ever larger scale.

And, if the famous debate around architectural plagiarism interests you,

(“I’m a plagiarist man — you see, you must take everything from everybody”
Philip Johnson)
