Yayoi Kusama’s Obliteration Room at David Zwirner Gallery

If you’re searching for a unique experience with kids this rainy weekend, look no further than The Obliteration Room, an amazing part of the “Give Me Love” installation by artist Yayoi Kusama.  What looks like an ordinary yellow house inside David Zwirner’s Chelsea gallery is far from that on the inside.

The Obliteration Room began as a completely monochrome whitewashed interior, from the walls to the furniture, to the kitchen gadgets and objects.  Upon entry, visitors are handed a sheet of brightly colored round stickers to stick anywhere inside the house.

Resulting in magnificent explosions of polka-dotted color.

And freedom for children (and adults) to affix stickers wherever their heart pleases.

FYI: Goo Gone works pretty well if the kids try this at home.

  1. Brilliant!! My son would be all over this, lol! I wonder if I should dedicate one of his walls to stickers…let him have a field day! Actually, I remember as a child that my parents let me write and paint all over the inside of my bedroom door. I thought they were the coolest parents ever!

  2. In NYC–I think maybe I will take a little hop, skip and jump down there–this looks like fun and not just for the kids!

  3. Looks like so much, I want to go there myself

  4. What a super cool place for kids to feel creative! I am digging the bright color everywhere!

  5. WOw, those actually have me a bit mesmerized. I’m sure that costs a penny or two 🙂

  6. Such a cool mom to expose kids to this art!
