Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors
Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors (July 30–September 10) who use mobility devices, are unable to stand in line, or are sensitive to flickering lights and enclosed spaces should be advised.
Visitors will have 20-30 seconds in each room, as designated by the artist. A room attendant will escort visitors in and out.
We anticipate that there will be lines outside each room. If you are unable to stand while in line, please speak to a staff member about borrowing a folding gallery stool.
30” by 60” ramps with a rise of 2.8” approach each room, with a flat 60” by 60” landing area at the top, outside each door. Standard wheelchairs and other mobility devices less than 30” wide can enter and exit the Infinity Mirror Rooms one at a time. Inside each Infinity Mirror Room is a short runway, 30” to 47” wide depending on the room. Once inside, wheelchairs will not be able to turn around, and visitors must be able to back straight out of the room.
The Infinity Mirror Room,
Aftermath of Obliteration of Eternity includes flickering gold lanterns. Please note the lights will go completely dark before beginning to flicker.
The immersive Infinity Mirror Rooms can be disorienting for people who rely on a steady visual field for balance. Please consider borrowing a wheelchair from our Coat Check if you are concerned about your balance while visiting the exhibition.
For visitors who cannot physically enter the Infinity Mirror Rooms, please ask staff for alternative ways to experience the exhibition.
