When: Thursday, February 23, 2017 - Sunday, May 14, 2017
Hot Spot: Smithsonian's Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, DC
Deets: “Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors” at the Smithsonian’s Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden is the first institutional exhibition to explore the evolution of the celebrated Japanese artist’s immersive, multireflective installations over more than five decades. On view from Feb. 23, 2017, to May 14, 2017, this ambitious survey exhibition addresses the phenomenological impact of Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity Mirror Rooms in relation to her career as a whole, and it presents six of her most iconic kaleidoscopic environments alongside two large-scale installations and key paintings, sculptures and works on paper from the early 1950s to the present.
A North American tour, the first in nearly two decades, is anticipated. The Seattle Art Museum is currently planning to host the exhibition in the summer of 2017, with additional venues to be announced. Previous single exhibitions have been featured in NYC and LA.
