The Broad’s first visiting special exhibition, Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors—the first institutional survey to explore the celebrated Japanese artist’s immersive Infinity Mirror Rooms—will embark on the most significant North American tour of her work in nearly two decades, and The Broad will be the only California museum to host the exhibition (October 21, 2017–January 1, 2018)

Since opening in September 2015, The Broad has featured Kusama’s installation Infinity Mirrored Room – The Souls of Millions of Light Years Away, 2013, from the Broad collection. One of the most popular artworks on view at The Broad, the installation is a mirror-lined chamber populated with a dazzling and seemingly vast array of LED lights creating a disorienting sense of limitless space. The work will be accessible to free general admission ticketholders through September 30, 2017, when it will temporarily transition to be included in the special exhibition through early January 2018. After the close of the special exhibition, the Infinity Mirrored Room will once again be accessible to free general admission ticketholders.

Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors will provide visitors with the unique opportunity to experience six of Kusama’s infinity rooms—the artist’s most iconic kaleidoscopic environments—alongside large-scale installations and key paintings, sculptures and works on paper from the early 1950s to the present, which contextualize the foundational role the concept of infinity has played in the artist’s work over many decades and through diverse media. The exhibition also marks the North American debut of numerous new works by the 88-year-old artist, who is still actively creating in her Tokyo studio. These include large-scale, vibrantly colored paintings and the recently realized infinity room, All the Eternal Love I Have for the Pumpkins, 2016, featuring dozens of her signature bright yellow, dotted 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.”
