21 Jul Yayoi Kusama at the Broad Museum
World-renowned Japanese contemporary artist, Yayoi Kusama is set to exhibit her Infinity Mirrors exhibition at The Broad contemporary art museum in Los Angeles, California. Best known for her obsession with repetitive dot patterns, 88-year-old Kusama’s works spans over six decades and is considered one of Japan’s best-known living artists. Running October 21, 2017 through January 1, 2018, the exhibition offers a unique opportunity to experience six of Kusama’s infinity rooms in addition to highlighting a range of Kusama’s work ranging from her early explorations in the 1950s to the present. The exhibition also marks the North American debut of numerous new works including the 2016 installation All the Eternal Love I Have for the Pumpkins.
“Our Infinity Mirrored Room has become a cultural phenomenon and many of our visitors are extremely passionate about Kusama’s work,” said Joanne Heyler, founding director of The Broad. “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.”
In addition to Kusama’s new exhibition opening in October, The Broad is is currently featuring Kusama’s 2013 installation called Infinity Mirrored Room – The Souls of Millions of Light Years Away, which has been open to the public since September 2015 and will run through September 30, 2017. Currently one of the most popular artworks, the installation features a mirror-lined chamber populated with a dazzling array of LED lights.
