The Broad Museum
The last time I went to the Broad we weren’t able to get into see the Infinity Mirrors. So with the release of tickets to the Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors Exhibit I jumped on getting tickets. Also Phill’s mom was in town so his sister and her joined us for a day downtown to enjoy some art and mirrors.
The first mirrored room was the infinity mirrors and their starry madness.
The next room was the pink polka-dot bubble room, or: Dots obsession – Love Transformed into Dots.
It was in a big pink bubble.
It’s kind of random inside since a lot of the mirror are blocked by the bubbles.
There was also a bubble to look into that had infinity mirrors in it.
Next up were the phallic craziness in the accumulations portion of the exhibit.
Chairs and boats covered in penises.
Phill wasn’t sure he wanted to go into the next room.
And indeed, inside there were spotted dicks everywhere.
Continuing to the next room there was more phallic art.
Then there was a room filled with her dot paintings.
This lead up to the next mirrored room, which was another one that you peeked into from the outside.
You had thirty seconds to look inside while the lights changed.
Phill only needed five seconds before he was ready to move on. It ended with a rainbow of lights that was pretty cool to see.
The last of the infinity mirrored rooms was one of my favorites.
It’s very peaceful and calming in the darkness surrounded by the floating lanterns. And during the last few seconds it goes pitch black.
Just outside of that room was this tentacle sculpture.
It’s cool at every angle.
Next up was a room filled with bright colored paintings and sculptures.
This lead to the final room of the tour the obliteration room, a white room where guests get a sheet of stickers to place anywhere inside, giving the room color.
I put one of my stickers on Phill so he could be art.
But he turned out to just be a temporary piece.
After the rooms we headed on up to explore a bit of the museum.
But after a few rooms Phill’s mom and sister were getting a little tired so we headed on out. The mirror room exhibit was a lot of fun and, dare I say, lives up to the hype. Definitely a fun afternoon at the museum.
