Yayoi Kusama, Bronx Botanical Gardens
The rare kind of exhibition where the way the art was displayed made a big (positive) difference to how you perceive it and how you perceive your surroundings.
The initial display at this new sculpture park was excellent — it’s a really lovely venue and was a good selection of artists (David Adjaye’s pavilion was the highlight.)

Some of the most technically impressive art I’ve seen in a long time: the “cardboard” box above is made of metal.
Honourable mentions: Jasper Johns (Whitney), Surrealism Beyond Borders (Met), Idris Khan (Victoria Miro)
Waste of time and money: Louise Bourgeouis (Jewish Museum)
