Don’t miss Yayoi Kusama’s Fireflies on the Water, which is at the Whitney until October 28. As The New York Times explains, “The installation, ‘Fireflies on the Water,’ consists of a small room with mirrored walls, two inches of water on the floor, a raised platform for a viewer to stand on and 150 colored lights dangling from the ceiling. Only one person is allowed in the room at a time. Once the door closes behind you, it’s like you’re suspended in outer space. An infinity of lights surrounds you.” An infinity of light. Take the chance while you have it!
