This week I saw Yayio Kusuma’s jaw-dropping exhibition, “Infinity Mirrors,” at the Broad Museum here in Los Angeles. They only give you 30 seconds (Yes, 30 miserable seconds!) in each room (the crowds are huge so they must limit the time). But who can live the magic and beauty of those whimsical installations and photograph them at the same time? Well, since everybody is a photographer these days, people desperately try to do both, leaving the exhibition with a sense of wonder and frustration at the same time. Anyway, these photos are not great, and I can’t stand the idea of being in all of them (mirrors…), but for those who may not have seen her work or even heard about this magnificent artist, here’s a modest illustration of “Infinity Mirrors.”
For this week’s theme, Rounded, I thought Yayoi Kusama’s signature polka-dotted balls and the curvy shapes of the Broad Museum’s architecture would be a good fit. Photos taken at the “Infinity Mirros” exhibition, on October 25, 2017.
