Observing the Never Ending Room

Los Angeles is known for the many activities there are in the city, and one of those fun activities is the free art exhibitions at places like LACMA and the Broad. Last year, nobody could get enough of the Rain Room at LACMA, but this year, people are raving about the new room at the Broad. The exhibition includes six rooms as well as more than 60 paintings, sculptures and works on paper from the 87-year-old-artist, but the most famous one at the moment is the piece created by Yayoi Kusama called Infinity Mirrored Room.  The Infinity Mirrored Room is a mirror-lined chamber housing a dazzling and seemingly endless LED light display.


Along with Infinity Mirrored Room, you’ll also encounter Love Forever, 1966/1994, a hexagonal flashing chamber that viewers can look into; Dots Obsession — Love Transformed into Dots, 2009, a domed mirror room with inflatables suspended from the ceiling; Aftermath of Obliteration of Eternity, 2009, a starfield-like installation and more.


This experiential artwork has extremely limited capacity, accommodating one visitor at a time for about a minute, and requires a separate free timed same-day reservation which ticket holders are able to reserve, pending availability, after arrival at the museum at a kiosk in the center of the lobby. Time in the Infinity Mirrored Room can’t be reserved in advance of your visit. The installation will be on view through October 2017.
