Yayoi Kusama is displaying her worldwide famous “Infinity Mirror Room” installations in Miami for the first time. From October 12th to January 31st, 2020, the Institute of Contemporary Art in Miami will be the stage for this amazing exhibition that has received many visitors throughout the years. So today, and leading up to Art Basel Miami, Wall Mirrors is about to tell you all about this exhibition!
The Institute of Contemporary Art, Miami is currently hosting a momentous exhibition by Yayoi Kusama entitled “All the Eternal Love I Have for the Pumpkins”. The legendary Japanese artist presents one of her signature Infinity Mirror Room installations for the first time in Miami. Inside the immersive installation, Kusama’s signature spotted pumpkins are observed inside a mirror-lined room illuminated with color-changing LED lights.
ICA Miami presents a special off-site exhibition of artist Yayoi Kusama’s “All the Eternal Love I Have for the Pumpkins” in the Miami Design District, marking the first time that one of Kusama’s signature “Infinity Mirror Rooms” will be presented in Miami. This exclusive exhibition was possible with the support from Inigo Philbrick Gallery, and all of the profit is going to art education programs.
“All the Eternal Love I Have for the Pumpkins” displays the artist’s singular approach to large-scale installation and incorporates one of the artist’s quintessential symbols: the spotted pumpkin. One of the first mirrored pumpkin rooms created by Kusama, the installation draws on several of the artists’ characteristic themes, including infinity, the sublime and obsessive repetition.
“Infinity Mirror Room” was originally commissioned for the Japanese Pavilion at the 1993 Venice Biennale, and “All the Eternal Love I Have for the Pumpkins” focuses the reflective chamber on a series of acrylic yellow gourds covered in black polka dots, allowing viewers to fully immerse themselves in Kusama’s creation, becoming part of the art.
Yayoi Kusama is an eccentric artist and painter, with over 60 years of experience, filled with innovative installations and art projects. “Infinity Mirror Rooms” are some of her most experimental and iconic works, often incorporating a variety of illuminated objects. Make sure you get to check out this installation in Miami and breathe the art of Yayoi Kusama.
