'With All My Love for The Tulips, I Pray Forever (2011)'. Celebrating World Art Day
On World Art Day, we're looking at Yayoi Kusama's sculptural installation 'With All My Love for The Tulips, I Pray Forever (2011).' Kusama is a Japanese artist who spent several years in New York, where this exhibition was held in 2017. She’s known for combining the organic and the artificial, as she does with these oversized polka-dotted tulips that blend into their background.World Art Day is an international celebration of the fine arts, started by the International Association of Art in 2012. April 15 was chosen for the celebration to honour Leonardo da Vinci on his birthday. It’s intended as a symbol of world peace, freedom of expression, tolerance and brotherhood. Festivities include gallery exhibitions, artist talks, pop-ups, installations, and performances in schools and other spaces.
