A couple weeks ago, I was able to check out the Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors Exhibit at The Broad. And I must say…. it was incredible. From the moment I read about this exhibit, I was excited and determined to get tickets. On the day of ticket release, it was difficult to get tickets — I almost wasn’t able to get tickets. Fortunately, my friend was online as well and she was able to score a spot in the virtual line that guaranteed her tickets.
General admission to The Broad is free, as long as you make reservations online. Infinity Mirrors, however is a paid exhibit. But definitely worth it. This exhibit is so visually stunning.
The only cons about the exhibit are that:
- You only have 30 seconds to experience each room, except for The Obliteration Room at the end.
- You have to go inside each room with at least two people. So if you were already thinking about that selfie, you can forget about it.
- Once you’ve gone through a room, you cannot go back.
Some cons, but definitely not dealbreakers. If you’re able to score tickets, I’m telling you, you won’t regret it.
One of my favorite rooms was The Obliteration Room, which is at the end of the exhibit. You are given a sheet of polka dot stickers and can place them anywhere you want. I love the interactive aspect of this room — you get to be a part of creating the artwork.
My favorite room of the entire exhibit was hands down Aftermath of Obliteration of Eternity. Pictures do not do this room justice. When you enter this room, it’s as if you are surrounded by thousands of lanterns and it feels so magical.
Tickets are hard to come by, but if you’re able to get tickets to this exhibition, trust me, you will not regret it!
