Organized by the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, this exhibition will take visitors on a once-in-a-lifetime journey through more than sixty years of Kusama’s creative output and will explore the evolution of the artist’s Infinity Mirror Rooms, her iconic kaleidoscopic environments. The exhibition will present six of these rooms, along with other large-scale installations, sculptures, paintings, works on paper, and archival photographs and films from the early 1950s through the present. Also on view will be numerous new works by the 87-year-old artist, who is still very active in her Tokyo studio, including her recently completed Infinity Mirror Room—All the Eternal Love I Have for the Pumpkins (2016), featuring dozens of Kusama’s signature dotted, bright-yellow pumpkin sculptures.
