Yayoi Kusama’s ‘Infinity Mirrors’ definitely returns to Toronto this month
The Art Gallery of Ontario will once again offer visitors the chance to experience Yayoi Kusama’s ‘Infinity Mirrors’ exhibition this month following the museum’s permanent acquisition of the installation.
The new exhibition, called ‘Infinity Mirrored Room – Let’s Survive Forever,’ features mirrored spheres suspended from the ceiling, as well as a mirrored column allowing visitors to view an endless field of silver orbs. It was extremely popular in Toronto after debuting in 2018.
Beginning June 22, annual pass holders and the public will be able to enjoy the new facility as part of their general admission. AGO members can visit the exhibition from June 14.
This installation is not identical to the previous functionality of Kusama at AGO, ‘Yayoi Kusama: Infinite Mirrors’ which was a temporary exhibition with several rooms and is no longer on display. Instead, “Let’s Survive Forever” is a unique installation and has never been shown in Toronto.
Admission to the exhibition is included in admission, but a timed reservation is required. Reservations are available for same-day slots only and are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. They can be reserved at the Kusama Kiosk on Level 1 of the museum, says AGO.
To have the best chance of securing a spot to view the installation, they recommend arriving early to reserve your reservation on the day of your visit.
Visitors are only allowed to stay in the exhibit for up to sixty seconds, according to the museum, and only four guests can enter at a time.
Photography is permitted in the facility.
