And where to get tickets before they sell out
Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors is one of the year’s most highly anticipated art exhibitions, and for good reason: The legendary Japanese artist’s work overflows with color, personality, and avant-garde elegance. The spectacular showcase is coming to The Broad museum in Los Angeles this fall, and you’ll want to get tickets before they sell out.
The unique exhibition traces Kusama’s trajectory from her early surrealist works to recent paintings and sculptures, highlighting the artist’s recurring themes of nature, fantasy, utopia, dystopia, unity, isolation, obsession, detachment, life, and death.
The Broad will be the only museum in California to host Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors as it continues its six-venue tour through North America. Tickets for the entire run of the exhibition—which opens October 21 and will be on view through January 1, 2018—go on sale at 12 p.m. PST on Friday, September 1. Tickets are expected to sell out at a rapid pace, as they did at the Seattle Art Museum, where the popular exhibit's current run ends September 10.
“Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors will provide visitors with the unique opportunity to experience Kusama’s most iconic kaleidoscopic environments and artworks,” according to a release from The Broad. “A selection of more than 60 paintings, sculptures, works on paper and archival materials will also be on view, showcasing several of Kusama’s lesser-known collages.”
