Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors presents over five decades of work by the Japanese artist. It is the first institutional exhibition to explore the evolution of Kusama’s groundbreaking mirrored infinity rooms. Also on display will be paintings from her ongoing Infinity Net and My Eternal Soul series, sculptures, and early drawings. Many of these works are being shown in the United States and Canada for the first time in this traveling presentation.
As part of the exhibition’s tour of major museums in North America—the first for Kusama’s work in nearly twenty years—Infinity Mirrors travels to the Art Gallery of Ontario from The Broad in Los Angeles, where it was on view from October 2017 to January 2018. The exhibition was previously presented at the Seattle Art Museum (June 30–September 10, 2017) and opened at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, DC (February 23–May 14, 2017). From Toronto, the show will travel to the Cleveland Museum of Art in Ohio (July–October 2018), followed by the High Museum of Art in Atlanta (November 2018–February 2019).
In a review of the show for The Seattle Times, Gayle Clemans described Kusama’s work as “cathartic and concrete, universal and specific, infinitely appealing and intimately personal.”
