Previous Kusama exhibitions at the gallery and elsewhere have had wait times from thirty minutes to over two hours—it depends on the time and the day. Please note that the line may be cut off at a certain point to accommodate visitors during open hours. Updates on lines and wait times will be shared on our social media channels listed above.
If capacity allows, those wishing to see the paintings and sculptures by Kusama can simply enter the gallery without waiting.

The exhibition will feature new paintings, new sculptures elaborating on her signature motifs of pumpkins and flowers, and a new Infinity Mirror Room.
Yes, due to the many visitors we will welcome into the gallery, each person’s time inside the Infinity Mirror Room will be limited to allow for a large number of visitors to engage with the work.
It’s hard to guarantee quick entry, but for past Kusama shows, the shortest wait times were often early weekday mornings.
