Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors

Yayoi Kusama

This past weekend I had the opportunity to visit Infinity Mirrors by Yayoi Kusama at the Seattle Art Museum. This exhibit was truly one of the most spectacular art exhibits I have ever experienced.

The exhibit sold out almost immediately after it arrived in Seattle. Since its run is nearing the end here in Seattle, 3 of my friends and I decided we needed to see it before it departed. We planned for a 7am arrival, and luckily my girlfriends we able to get there on time. I accidentally set my alarm for 6pm instead of 6am and overslept! As soon as I realized I was late, I frantically got dressed and ran out the door. My amazing friends somehow snagged 2nd in line to enter the Museum. Once 10am arrived, and along with it, the opening of the Museum, the line had wrapped all the way around the city block. I was so excited that we were able to get the tickets! If you plan on getting day-of tickets - get there EARLY!!

Most of the exhibit was completely immersive. We we able to step into the installations, shut the door, and watch the art go on forever. The shapes, colors, and immensity of the installations are so amazing and almost overwhelming. Photos could never do Yayoi Kusama's work justice. If this exhibit ever comes to your city, don't hesitate to get tickets!
