Yayoi Kusama 'Infinity Mirrors' Exhibit to Land at the Hirshhorn

Stickers, Phallic sculptures, and more

In February 2017, Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama will debut a brand new installation at the Hirshhorn Museum that will be sure to turn heads and keep them turning. In her "Infinity Mirrors" exhibit, there will be a performance chamber with phallic sculptures and mirrors all around as well as a participatory piece with stickers on every inch of the room.

This will be the first survey of her Infinity Rooms and will collect over 60 paintings and sculptures from the artist's more than five decades of work. There will be a total of two large-scale installations and six "kaleidoscopic environments," reported Washington City Paper.

The last time Washington, D.C. had an "infinite" room of mirrors was this past summer when the National Building Museum showcased the BEACH exhibit. Rather than a ball pit, this installation instead utilizes sewn stuffed cotton fabric and board.
