A few weeks ago I attended a special preview of 'One with Eternity: Yayoi Kusama in the Hirshhorn Collection' in honor of the celebrated artists 94th birthday. This was my third visit to see the incredible exhibit and was just as amazing as ever.
On Kusama's birthday, the Hirshhorn announced the extension of 'One with Eternity' through July 16 of this year. If you haven't been yet, this is now the perfect time to be fully immersed in Kusama's infinite world. The exhibit includes two Infinity Mirror Rooms - "Phalli's Field" (my personal favorite and a permanent work at the Hirshhorn) and "My Heart Is Dancing Into the Universe" - an infinity of colorful dots and lanterns. It also includes "Pumpkin" and photographs and an in-depth background of Kusama's career.
The exhibit is an eye-opening look into Kusama's mind and although its a small exhibit, is one of my favorite exhibits I've viewed in DC in recent years. I really hope this post inspires you to make a visit - the photos alone do not do it justice and it is meant to be seen in person for the full, immersive effect.
Admission to 'One with Eternity' is free, however timed passes are required for the exhibit. You can request next-day advance tickets (up to 2 per person) online at Hirshhorn here.
