2 Yayoi Kusama ‘Infinity Mirrored Rooms’ are coming to Montreal and admission is free

As of Wednesday, June 15, at 12 p.m., Montrealers will be able to reserve a place to visit the showcase of works by Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama from the PHI Foundation for Contemporary Art. The exhibit, titled ‘DANCING LIGHTS SOARING TOWARDS THE UNIVERSE’, will include three of Kusama’s pumpkin carvings and two of his famous Infinity Mirrored Rooms.

One of the rooms is “filled with suspended glowing globes that alternate colors before abruptly darkening,” PHI explained in a press release. “The viewer is absorbed in darkness for a moment before the luminous spheres slowly re-ignite, again initiating a near cycle of life and rebirth.”

In addition to the rooms and sculptures, the PHI Foundation will have a reading room with “a historical timeline of the artist’s life and career.”

Tickets are free, but because the foundation expects huge public interest in the exhibit — Kusama’s first in Quebec — it requires potential attendees to register for timed reservations.

Don’t worry if the available time slots disappear quickly. More tickets will be available on the 15th of each month through January.

“DANCING LIGHTS WHEEL UP TO THE UNIVERSE” is on view at the PHI Foundation from July 6, 2022 to January 15, 2023.
