Infinity Mirrors sells out in NYC, D.C. & L.A.
Kusama’s previous Infinity Mirrors tours in New York City, Washington, D.C and Los Angeles all sold out within a day or two.
The 88-year-old Japanese artist has been creating experiential infinity mirror rooms since 1965, and the current travelling exhibition presents six of them, the most ever shown together. According to the artist, the rooms provide an opportunity to celebrate “life and its aftermath.”
Strict time limits for visitors
Due to the nature of the spaces, up to four people at a time can enter each room, for 20-30 seconds at a time.
A full-priced adult ticket for the upcoming AGO exhibition costs $30, which equates to a cost of $10 a minute to view Infinity Mirrors.
Ticket holders should also expect to wait about 20 minutes to enter each room.
Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors opens at the Art Gallery of Ontario on March 3, 2018 and runs until May 27. For ticketing information, visit https://ago.ca/exhibitions/kusama
