Spy not one but six Infinity Mirror Rooms by Yayoi Kusama at The Broad, beginning in October 2017. The traveling show, which will visit five institutions around North America beginning in February 2017, includes both the famous Infinity Mirror Rooms synonymous with the lauded 87-year-old icon as well as other colorful pieces by Ms. Kusama. The Smithsonian's Hirshhorn Museum & Sculpture Garden is the first stop for the exhibition, and The Broad will be the only California museum to host the show, which is described as "the first institutional survey show to explore the celebrated Japanese artist's immersive Infinity Mirror Rooms." Hoping that the current Infinity Mirror Room at The Broad will be a part of the exhibition? It will be.

Polka dots and a swirl of hues are at the heart of "Obliteration Room," an interactive experience. "Upon entering, visitors will be invited to cover every surface of the furnished gallery with multicolored polka dot stickers, gradually engulfing the entire space in pulsating color," says the museum.
