Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors | High Museum, Atlanta

This touring exhibition has been referred to as the Hamilton of the art world. Previously sold out in cities from Washington, D.C., to Toronto to Cleveland, the captivating show is making its last stop on its multi-city tour at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, Georgia.

The exhibition takes visitors on a once-in-a-lifetime journey through more than 60 years of Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama’s creative genius, focusing on the evolution of her iconic kaleidoscopic environments called Infinity Mirror Rooms. The exhibition features six 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.

Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors will be on view at the High from November 18, 2018 through February 17, 2019.
