Yayoi Kusama’s “Infinity Mirrors” Hit the Road

by Melissa Mellati

The much loved Japanese artist, Yayoi Kusama, known for her hugely popular “Infinity Mirrored Room—The Souls of Millions of Light Years Away” installation, will be touring across North America in a special exhibition surveying seven decades of the her work, reports Artnet. The “Infinity Mirror” room currently in place at the Broad Museum was featured in one of pop singer Adele’s music videos and has served as a popular selfie backdrop for museum goers with it’s boundless sea of fairy lights and reflective surfaces.

The special exhibition, aptly titled: “Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors,” will feature no less than six of her immersive “Infinity Mirror” rooms, along with several of her other captivating past works and installations—some of which have yet to be shown in North America.

The exhibit will debut February 23, 2017 at the Smithsonian Institution’s Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden. It will then move to the Seattle Art Museum from June to September 2017, The Broad in Los Angeles from October 2017 to January 2018, followed by appearances at the Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto and the Cleveland Museum of Art.
