Several members of the instagram community were invited to preview the stellar exhibition Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors at the Hirshhorn Museum last night. The retrospective, which kicks off in Washington DC before traveling to three other venues, is a celebration of the legendary Japanese artist’s sixty-five-year career and promises to be one of the year’s most instagrammed experiences.
On view are six of Kusama’s infinity rooms, including her latest room, All the Eternal Love I Have for the Pumpkins, which has never been shown in the United States. All are incredible and they are juxtaposed by other key works from the artist.
Due to high demand and to the extreme intimacy of the rooms, timed advanced passes are necessary. To plan your visit, click here: http://hirshhorn.si.edu/kusama/passes/
Here are some favorite images from last night:
This evening, the @hirshhorn museum hosted a small group of us to preview the new #InfiniteKusama exhibition, which showcases six of Kusama's infinity rooms from throughout her decades-long career. This room, “All the Eternal Love I Have for the Pumpkins,” has never been to the US before. And after meeting @pvong1 tonight, I couldn't resist the opportunity of being one of the first people to #makeportraits inside its walls.
