Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity Mirrored Room―My Heart is Dancing into the Universe is reopening with a members-only preview Wednesday, July 21–Monday, July 26. Tickets are not required, but the museum asks that members bring their printed or digital member card.
With an amazing reception in 2019, Infinity Mirrored Room–My Heart is Dancing Into the Universe (2018) is on view permanently at Crystal Bridges. The room itself is small and filled with mirrors and different-colored paper lanterns that have color-changing dots. This effect makes it appear like the dots expand forever into the universe. Each guest has one minute to view the room and take photos or videos. Flash photography is prohibited. There is a designated path in the room for one to two guests at a time to follow; the path must be followed and mirrors should not be stepped on for any reason. The immersive experience will open to the public July 28 and tickets are not required.
More information about the permanent exhibition can be found on Crystal Bridges’ website.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Yayoi Kusama is a contemporary artist who makes paintings, sculptures, performances, and installations. Dots are a common theme throughout her work—a pattern that she has utilized in her work since she was a child in an effort to escape trauma and anxiety. Crystal Bridges acquired another artwork of hers in 2018, Flowers That Bloom Now, which can be found on the South Lawnin the North Forest. A temporary installation of Narcissus Garden, another work by Kusama, is also on view near the South Lawn at the Crystal Pond.
