One thing we love about Instagram is the rise in popularity of art installations—a little more art appreciation is always a good thing in our book, even if you're doing it for the 'gram. And we have exciting news for New Yorkers: Yayoi Kusama's Infinity Mirror Rooms are back, along with even more works from the 88 year old artist.
Open through December 16, the exhibits span three David Zwirner gallery spaces in New York: Festival of Life at 525 and 533 West 19th Street in Chelsea, and Infinity Nets at the recently opened space on 34 East 69th Street on the Upper East Side.
According to a press release, the galleries feature 66 paintings from her iconic My Eternal Soul series, new large-scale flower sculptures, a polka-dotted environment, two Infinity Mirror Rooms in the Chelsea locations, and a selection of new Infinity Nets paintings uptown.
The new Infinity Rooms are experienced in opposite ways, as one "invites the viewer to look inside through three peepholes" where "miniature light bulbs in changing colors reveal a hexagonal pattern that is mirrored endlessly." The other "can be experienced from within," and has "stainless steel balls suspended from the ceiling and arranged on the floor" (reminiscent of Kusama's Glass House installation).
The wait can be hours long, and you only get a minute with each Infinity Room, but just think of the likes.
Check out more info about the exhibits over on the David Zwirner website.
