Weekly Culture Report: Cooped Up x Infinity
Hey, mom. Yesterday was real long, right? I spent most of the rainy weekend inside with my guys, while they ran laps around the place wielding various light sabers and swords. I’d peek outside from time to time and wonder longingly, “What’s going on out there?”
Here’s what the internet told me:
People are going nuts for Yayoi Kusama's exhibitions at two David Zwirner galleries in New York. Famous for her "Infinity Rooms" which are part-installation/part-performance, Kusama is, perhaps primarily, is a prolific painter, who's been a force in the art scene since the 60s.
Selfies abound in the mirrored Infinity Rooms.
Her paintings don't get as much PR, but feature the same preoccupation with repetition and color.
And I'm loving these collaged paintings by artist and curator, Derrick Adams
Adams is currently showing at Tilton Gallery in NYC, called “Figures in Urban Landscapes," which opens November 8.
I'm bummed I'm just learning about this guy. I missed his "Future People" show at Stony Island Arts Bank this summer. BTW, do you know about this place?
It's a new art space opened by Theaster Gates and his Rebuild Foundation. They're doing amazing work to bring free arts programming to the South Side of Chicago, create affordable housing for Black artists, and execute dozens of other super awesome ventures in the city.

Which one, mom? And tell me all about the velvet in your life!
Have a great week!
