One of her most famous works, INFINITY MIRRORED ROOM - LET'S SURVIVE FOREVER, features suspended mirrored spheres and a column that creates an illusion of infinite silver orbs. Thanks to the support of over 4,700 donors and the David Yuile & Mary Elizabeth Hodgson Fund, this extraordinary artwork is now a part of the AGO Collection. ABOUT THE ARTIST Yayoi Kusama, born in 1929 in Japan, is a highly influential artist whose work transcends pop art and minimalism. Her diverse career spans paintings, performances, installations, films, fashion, and more. She gained recognition in the 1960s in New York with avant-garde happenings and her first Infinity Mirror Room, using mirrors to create the illusion of infinite space. Kusama has since created over 20 unique rooms. Her work received widespread acclaim in the late 1980s, and she represented Japan at the 1993 Venice Biennale. Even at the age of 90, Kusama continues to create interactive and infinite-like spaces, as well as paintings and sculptures. Tips: - Open time: Tuesday, Thursday @ 10:30 am - 5:00 pm.
