It's mirrors like you've never seen before!
Yayoi Kusama's Inifinity Mirrors is coming to the High Museum of Art. Tickets go on sale Sept. 17.
The touring exhibit, often referred to as the "Hamilton" of the art world, has sold out stops across the country. Tickets sold exclusively to High Museum members went on sale in August. The museum sold 28,000 tickets the first day and many anxious buyers spent the day on the computer, at times waiting behind a virtual queue of 10,000 others, trying to buy tickets to the show.
The exhibition takes visitors on a journey through 60 years of Kusama's creative genius, focusing on the evolution of her iconic kaleidoscopic environments called Infinity Mirror Rooms. The exhibition features six of the rooms as well as additional large-scale installations, sculptures, paintings, works on paper, archival photographs and films from the early 1950s through the present. The 89-year-old artist, who is regarded as one of the most influential artists of the 20th century, is still very active in her Tokyo studio. New works in the exhibition include vibrantly colored paintings and the recently completed Infinity Room “All the Eternal Love I Have for the Pumpkins” (2016), filled with dozens of Kusama’s signature bright-yellow, dotted pumpkin sculptures. The show visits the High from Nov. 18 to Feb. 17, 2019.
