Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity Mirror Rooms on Tour

 

Yayoi Kusama is one of Japan’s most important contemporary artists. Her legendary 65-year career of multi-reflective installations, paintings, sculptures, drawings has left people in awe.

 

In 1965, Kusama began utilizing mirrors to transcend the physical limitations of her own productivity and achieve the repetition that is crucial to her paintings and Accumulations. Sculptural, architectural, and performative, these installations blur the line between artistic disciplines and create a participatory experience by casting the visitor as the subject of the work.

 

Focusing on the evolution of her immersive “Infinity Mirror Rooms,” the most significant North American tour of Kusama’s work in nearly two decades began at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden (23 February – 14 May 2017) before travelling to its current home … Seattle Art Museum (30 June – 10 September 2017), Followed by The Broad in Los Angeles (October 2017 – January 2018), Art Gallery of Ontario (March – May 2018) and the Cleveland Museum of Art (July – October 2018).
