Editor's Note: In light of the COVID-19 epidemic, the Yayoi Kusama exhibition has been postponed until 2021. Exact dates have not yet been set. The NYBG announced the news on April 2. The artist offered her own statement in support of the move: "The passion that I and those at The New York Botanical Garden have poured into this exhibition is still burning. Everyone, I hope you will wait. We aspire for endless love permeated with everyone's heart's of human love, a wish for peace in the world, our dreams, and wonders of hope—it is our wish that this exhibition can offer these as its greatest gift. I hope you all can wait. With all my heart, Yayoi Kusama."
