To Infinity and Beyond: Get Tickets for Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity MirrorsAuthor:Abigail Stone
Yayoi Kasuma’s Inifinity Mirrored Room – The Souls of Millions of Light Years Away, 2013, has been dazzling visitors to The Broad since the museum’s opening. Now, a full complement of the Japanese artist’s captivating Infinity Mirror rooms will arrive at The Broad on October 21 and run through January 1, 2018. Tickets will be released on September 1st at noon, pacific time.
The exhibit, which will include large-scale installations, paintings, sculptures and works on paper from the early 1950s to the present, alongside six of the 88 year old Tokyo-based artist’s mirrored infinity rooms — including her most recent realized infinity room, All the Eternal Love I Have for the Pumpkins, 2016, featuring dozens of her signature bright yellow, dotted pumpkins — puts the role that the concept of infinity has played in her work in perspective.
“Our Infinity Mirrored Room has become a cultural phenomenon and many of our visitors are extremely passionate about Kusama’s work,” said Joanne Heyler, founding director of The Broad. Once experienced, it’s easy to understand why. Standing alone in the dark inside the small rooms, with objects and lights endlessly multiplied, the boundaries of self start to slip away; it feels like floating. Infinity and beyond? Definitely.
The exhibit, which debuted at The Smithsonian’s Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden earlier this year before moving on to the Seattle Art Museum, represents the museum’s first special exhibition. After its run at The Broad, it will travel on to The Art Gallery of Ontario, the Cleveland Museum of Art and the High Museum of Art In Atlanta.
