Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity Mirror Rooms Will Open This Week in NYC
Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama has been incredibly busy lately. She opened her museum in Tokyo about a month ago, had an exhibit in LA over the summer, and is now bringing her work back to David Zwirner’s galleries in NYC.

The two exhibits she will have across the three galleries are called Infinity Nets and Festival of Life. But be ready to wait in long lines to see the brilliant polka dot creations by Kusama.


Along with her signature polka dots you’ll be able to experience her Infinity Mirror Rooms. The mirrors were a huge success in LA recently, so we can only image the influx of Instagram photos we’ll see from the exhibit once it opens here on November 2nd.

There will be one infinity room to peer into through a peephole at the Festival of Life exhibit in downtown, and a physical infinity mirror room to stand in at the gallery location in Chelsea.

OMG, #InfiniteKusama opens this Friday! 🔴 This exhibition is a unique, immersive experience that necessitates a smaller gallery capacity in order for visitors to interact with the art as the artist intended. Because of this, our advance tickets went quickly. But, there are other options! 〰 A limited number of timed tickets are available on-site for same-day use, on a first-come, first-served basis. The museum opens at 10 am and due to high demand, we anticipate that a line may form prior to opening. Limit 4 tickets per person. For all the details 👉 visitsam.org/kusama (💌 Pssst: Join our email list to keep up to date on all things Kusama, including ticketing updates and potential extended hours: visitsam.org/sign-up) — #YayoiKusama #SeattleArt #InfinityMirrorRoom [🎨: Infinity Mirrored Room–Love Forever, by Yayoi Kusama, 1966/94. visitsam.org/kusama]
