Walking into Perrotin Gallery in New York is like finding a circus of bears – all made of feather boas.

It ties into the artist’s recent trip to India, where she was inspired by bright potent hues of colors, while the bear motif is inspired by the wildlife in crisis she saw while living in Alaska.
Catch it before June 3.
