In 2017, Yayoi Kusama’s NYC exhibition, Festival of Life, sparked an Instagram frenzy. Her utopia of polka-dotted rooms and infinity mirrors provided perfect photo backdrops, proven by the endless barrage of Insta-selfies. This year, there’s a flood of interactive pop-up exhibits, all of which seem to speak to our collective need to not only document our lives, but to actively seek out (and pay for) interesting backdrops in which to do so.
Explore an exhibit that’ll remind you that all five senses can be touched by the vibrant palette that exists in the world. In 20,000 square feet of space in SoHo, explore color in all its various, sensual forms. Color Factory is a creative collaboration—the result of some of New York’s most creative makers coming together to shade the world in an entirely unique approach.
