The first visiting special exhibition at The Broad, the highly anticipated “Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors” will be open Oct. 21 to Jan. 1.
The Broad will release about 50,000 advance tickets Sept. 1 at noon, and they are expected to sell out because it is the only California museum that presents this special exhibition.
Tickets cost $25 for visitors age 13 and over, whereas those under the age of 13 are admitted for free but cannot go without an adult. One adult is required for every two children. Tickets are available for purchase online at ticketing.thebroad.org, or one may purchase limited same-day standby tickets for $30.
“Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors” will allow visitors to celebrate and become immersed in the world of Yayoi Kusama, a Japanese artist. This is an opportunity for visitors to explore her recently opened infinity room, All the Internal Love I Have For the Pumpkins, which is one of the “six of Kusama’s infinity rooms—the artist’s most iconic kaleidoscopic environments—alongside large-scale installations and key paintings, sculptures and works,” according to thebroad.org.
Other rooms that are included in the exhibition are Infinity Mirrored Room- Phalli’s Field, Infinity Mirrored Room- Love Forever, Infinity Mirrored Room- The Souls of Millions of Light Years Away, Dots Obsession- Love Transformed and Infinity Mirrored Room- Aftermath of Obliteration for Eternity. All rooms have mirrors and patterns that make the room seem endless.
The exhibition marks the North American debut of Kusama’s dazzling works, and she is still creating new works of art in her Tokyo studio.
Many only know of Kusama because of the Infinity Mirrored Room- The Souls of Millions of Light Years Away, but attending Kusama’s exhibition is a considerable way to learn more about a unique artist through her works.
