Since opening its doors in September 2015, The Broad in Los Angeles has been a popular destination for art appreciators. Their most popular exhibit, Infinity Mirrored Room — The Souls of Millions of Light Years Away, 2013 by Yayoi Kusama, has been a particularly favored exhibit amongst the visitors. The installation features a mirror-lined chamber covered with seemingly endless amounts of LED lights, which creates a sense of boundless space. The Broad recently announced that the current installation will soon be joined by five other infinity mirror rooms for a limited time between October 2017 to January 2018.
The Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors will not only allow visitors to experience Kusama’s six infinity mirror rooms, Kusama’s most iconic psychedelic chambers, but the Japanese artist’s painting, sculptures, and early works on paper. Each piece in the exhibit will allow visitors to understand how infinity has played a role in the artist’s work over the decades.
“Our Infinity Mirrored Room has become a cultural phenomenon and many of our visitors are extremely passionate about Kusama’s work,” said founding director of The Broad Joanne Heyler. “The timing is right for an exhibition that contextualizes the infinity rooms and brings Kusama’s contributions to 20th and 21st century art into deeper focus. We are thrilled to present this unprecedented special exhibition at The Broad next year that engages seven decades of work by a phenomenal artist.”
The mirror rooms that will be joining the current installation are Infinity Mirror Room—Phalli’s Field, Infinity Mirror Room—Love Forever, Dots Obsession—Love Transformed into Dots, Aftermath of Obliteration of Eternity, and The Obliteration Room. The exhibit will be a paid special exhibit, but your ticket grants you access to the rest of the museum. Infinity Mirrored Room—The Souls of Millions of Light Years Away will still be open to any visitor with a free general admission ticket until the paid Kusama paid special exhibition begins.
