After unveiling a selection of new works for David Zwirner’s “20/20” exhibition back in November, seminal Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama returns to Tate Modern to bring her world-renowned Infinity Mirror Rooms as part of the London institution’s dynamic program for the new year.

Kusama’s Infinity Mirror Rooms were initially inspired by her earliest dot paintings, circa 1950, that were developed using watercolor, gouache, and oil on paper. She called them Infinity Nets and explained that the colorful motifs were pulled from her real-life hallucinations. These works were then realized in three-dimensional forms as the artist built rooms lined with mirrored glass that contained hundreds of neon-colored balls at various heights above the onlooker — creating the illusion of infinite space. With her Infinity Mirror Rooms, Kusama aims to transport viewers into her hallucinations while elevating the intense repetition of dots in her earlier works on paper into a perceptual experience.

Kusama will present her Filled with the Brilliance of Life installation at Tate which the museum describes as one of her largest installations to date and was made for her 2012 retrospective at the institution. Coinciding with the installations is a small presentation of photographs that chronicle her prolific career and offer an intimate look at the artist’s life outside of her art.

The Infinity Mirror Rooms will be on view at Tate Modern from March 29 until March 27, 2022.

Elsewhere in art, Boston has removed a statue of a slave kneeling before Abraham Lincoln.
