The Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, DC, is planning the first survey of Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity Rooms next year. Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors (23 February-14 May 2017) will bring together six of the popular rooms, which have attracted round-the-block queues in Los Angeles and New York. Also on show will be more than 60 paintings and sculptures, and archival material that has never been seen before. “The real value… is connecting the work she did in the 1960s to her work today through the Infinity Rooms,” says the museum’s director, Melissa Chiu. The show will include a re-installation of Love Forever (1966/1995), in which Kusama transformed her studio into a performance chamber covered in mirrors. The exhibition is due to travel to the Seattle Art Museum in summer 2017. At Frieze New York, Victoria Miro (B6) is presenting four works by Kusama (priced at $500,000 to $1m), including a tentacle-like sculpture, The Moment of Regeneration (2004).
