Yayoi Kusama’s First Solo Exhibition in Québec is Now Open
In celebration of its fifteenth anniversary, the PHI Foundation for Contemporary Art in Montréal is pleased to present Yayoi Kusama: DANCING LIGHTS THAT FLEW UP TO THE UNIVERSE, the artist’s first solo exhibition in Québec.
Open through January 15, 2023, the exhibition in Montréal will present three of her signature bronze pumpkin sculptures in different sizes, two new “peep-in” mirrored rooms, a grid of her vibrant My Eternal Soul paintings, as well as two striking Infinity Mirrored Rooms. The exhibition’s titular work, Infinity Mirrored Room – DANCING LIGHTS THAT FLEW UP TO THE UNIVERSE (2019), is filled with hanging light globes that alternate colors before abruptly going dark. The glowing spheres slowly flicker back on, initiating again a cycle akin to life and rebirth. The exhibition will also include a reading room with a historical timeline of the artist’s life and career.
While admission is free, a reservation for timed entry will be required in order to ensure low waiting times and a pleasant passage through the exhibition.
