Even if you weren’t one of the 100,000 Angelenos who competed for some 50,000 tickets to see Yayoi Kusama’s upcoming exhibition, Infinity Mirrors, at The Broad, you still have a chance to immerse yourself in the kaleidoscopic setting that defines the Japanese artist’s work. On Monday, October 2 at noon, the museum will be offering up 40,000 additional tickets to the exhibit—which sold out in mere minutes on September 1—to those patient enough to “stand” in line.
Kusama’s first-floor residency at The Broad is part of the most significant North American tour of her work in nearly two decades and, as the only California museum to host the exhibition, The Broad should expect thousands of enthusiastic Social Media mentions in the coming months.
“I am deeply interested in trying to understand the relationship between people, society, and nature; and my work is forged from accumulations of these frictions”—Yayoi Kusama
For this latest exhibition, which will run from October 21, 2017 to January 1, 2018, visitors will be provided with “the unique opportunity to experience six of Kusama’s infinity rooms alongside large-scale installations and key paintings, sculptures and works on paper from the early 1950s to the present, which contextualize the foundational role the concept of infinity has played in the artist’s work over many decades and through diverse media.”
A limited number of same-day standby tickets will be available each day on a first-come, first-served basis. Tickets are $25 in advance or $30 day of.
