Coinciding with the recent unveiling of her newly designed Louis Vuitton displays and last week’s opening of her Retrospective at the Whitney, Yayoi Kusama has spread her signature red and white dots to the lawn of Hudson River Park. Presented by the Gagosian Gallery and the Hudson River Park Trust,  “Guidepost to the New Space” (2004) features unique, amoeba-shaped forms at Pier 45 on West 10th Street, close to the Whitney’s future location in the Meatpacking District.

Covered in red and white dots, the sculptures are purely visual installations, not designed for interactive purposes as they are rather fragile in construction. While Kusama’s Retrospective at the Whitney will be available until September 30th of this year, the structures will remain on the grassy area until an unannounced date at the end of the summer.
