Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors

In the course of her career, Kusama has produced more than twenty rooms of "infinity mirrors". Her exhibition at the Hirshhorn Museum, however, is the first to focus on and curate this body of work, which is defined here as pioneering and of central importance in the artist's oeuvre.

The works on exhibit are: Phalli's Field, 1965/2016; Love Forever, 1966/1994; The Souls of Millions of Light Years Away, 2013; Dots Obsession—Love Transformed into Dots, 2007 (installed in 2017); Aftermath of Obliteration of Eternity, 2009; and All the Eternal Love I Have for the Pumpkins, 2016.
