Yayoi Kusama’s retrospective at the Whitney, open through the end of the month, opened with much fanfare earlier this summer. Coinciding with the splashy touring exhibition is an intimate one-room show of Kusama’s drawings from the mid-1950s, which she worked on in Japan before moving to the U.S. in 1957. The 12 Surrealism-inspired tempera, pastel, oil and ballpoint pen works illuminate the origins of Kusama’s long-running obsession with dots, nets, flowers and infinitely repeating patterns.
