Everything You Need To Know About The Infinity Mirrors Exhibit

For all of the “I like art types” here’s everything you need to know about artist Yayoi Kusama’s highly anticipated Infinity Mirrors Exhibit coming to the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden this February.

Infinity Mirror Room exhibition

When I saw the pictures from the Infinity Room on view at The Broad in LA I was mesmerized. I knew this was something I wanted to experience in person but with up to 5 hour wait times for less than 1 minute inside the actual exhibit I was discouraged.

About Infinity Mirror Rooms

Over the course of her career, Yayoi Kusama has produced more than 20 distinct Infinity Mirror Rooms. The Hirshhorn’s exhibit will be the first to present 6 of the rooms, the most ever shown together. The show will highlight the artist’s central themes, such as the celebration life and its aftermath, and aims to reveal the significance of these installations amidst today’s renewed interest in experiential practices and virtual spaces.
