The Broad announces its first visiting special exhibit: ‘Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors’ – Los Angeles Times

Posted: Tuesday, August 16, 2016

Since the Broad opened last September, Yayoi Kusama’s “Infinity Mirrored Room” — with its reflective walls, pools of water and glimmering, outer-space-like crystal LEDs — has been the museum’s social media star, a popular art-selfie backdrop for visitors, particularly millennials posting on Facebook and Instagram.    

Now the Broad is announcing that the installation (full title: “Infinity Mirrored Room — The Souls of Millions of Light Years Away”) will be followed with the museum’s first visiting special exhibition: “Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors,” a seven-decade survey of the 87-year-old Japanese artist’s work, including six of her immersive “Infinity Mirror” rooms.

The exhibit is the first survey of Kusama’s “Infinity Mirror” rooms and was organized by the Smithsonian’s Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, where it will debut Feb. 23, 2017. The exhibit then moves to the Seattle Art Museum from June to September 2017, the Broad from October 2017 to January 2018, followed by stints at the Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto and the Cleveland Museum of Art.
