“Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors” is the first exhibition to explore the legendary Japanese artist’s iconic Infinity Mirror Rooms. Visitors will be able to step inside Kusama’s world by experiencing six of her dazzling mirrored environments—an unprecedented number—alongside new paintings, sculptures, rare archival material and large-scale installations such as the participatory “Obliteration Room.”
Following its Washington debut at the Hirshhorn, “Infinity Mirrors” will embark on the first North American retrospective of Kusama’s work in nearly 20 years.
