Tickets For The Broad's Selfie-Ready 'Infinity' Mirror Rooms Go On Sale Friday At Noon
Even if you know nothing about the Broad Museum, you would still likely recognize the expansive, twinkling lights of Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama's "Infinity Mirrored Room—The Souls of Millions of Light Years Away". The installation has been at the downtown museum since it opened in 2015—and it's played an equally pervasive role in L.A.'s collective Instagram feeds.
The museum's Kusama holdings (and Instagram dominance) will soon increase sixfold when the Broad welcomes "Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors," a survey of the artist's work that will run from October 21 to January 1, 2018. The temporary exhibit will feature six (!!!) of Kusama's Infinity Mirror Rooms, and what we can only presume are equally infinite angles to document yourself visiting them.
This is most definitely the highlight of my visit to @thebroadmuseum: experiencing Yayoi Kusama's Infinity Mirror Room, specifically "The Souls of Millions of Light Years Away." Absolutely otherworldly and it felt like I was in the outer space. 😱 To enter this room, you really have to come early because the queue for the day fills within the first 2 hours of the museum opening. Time in the room can't be booked in advance, you have to be at the museum first to be able to reserve your one-minute inside the room. (And it's literally one minute, there's a museum staff outside with a stopwatch who will let you know when your time is up.) The room is clearly a very instagrammable place (so don't go out without taking at least one picture) but remember to put your phone down and savor the moment because it's without a doubt not to be missed. 👏🏻 #liveawesome #LiveMoreSociety #DBSxKartuPos #travel @dbsbankid @kartuposinsta
The exhibit (presented by the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Smithsonian Institution) is making a tour across six venues in North America, and the stop at The Broad will be the only one in California.
Competition for limited entry will likely be fierce ("the popular exhibition has sold out at its previous venues," according to the Broad), so here's what you need to know to snag tix.
All advance tickets will be released September 1 at noon and will be available on the Broad's website. Adult tickets will cost $25 and include access to the entire special exhibition plus general admission to the museum (general admission to the museum is always free, fwiw). Visitors ages 12 and under can enter for free, but must be accompanied by an adult and have a ticket (and only two kids per adult, according to the Broad's website). Tickets are timed-entry every 15 minutes and are non-transferable and non-refundable. A limited number of same-day standby tickets will also be sold for $30.
"Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors" will run from October 21 to January 1, 2018 at The Broad. Tickets go on sale on September 1, 2017 at noon, and will be available on the museum's website. Advanced tickets will be $25 for adults, free for children 12 and under. The tickets will include same-day general admission for The Broad's third-floor galleries. On-site standby tickets will be $30 for adults, free for children 12 and under. The museum is at 221 S Grand Ave, Los Angeles. (213) 232-6200.
