Infinity Mirrored Room Installed Permanently

If you missed the Yayoi Kusama exhibition last spring, you have another chance to experience it. The Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) is permanently installing Infinity Mirrored Room – Let’s Survive Forever thanks to a Crowd Surf campaign called InfinityAGO. Supported by the David Yulie and Mary Elizabeth Hodgson Fund the crowdfunding campaign reached $1.3 million with 4,700 donations. Located on the upper floor of the Signy Eaton North Gallery, the installation features mirrored orbs suspended from the ceiling to the floor. The concept is to depict the mind of Kusama as a room of infinite space. It opens to the public on May 25. For more information, follow AGO on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

An 88-year-old Japanese artist, Kusama helped establish the pop art and minimalism movement. Her influence can be seen throughout the fashion and design worlds. Currently, she is working in Tokyo on painting projects Eternal Soul (2009-present) and My Adolescence in Bloom showcasing her signature polka dot.

Ticket are available through AGO general admission on a first come, first served basis. Visit the Kusama kiosk to reserve a timeslot.
