If you know anyone who has been to Japan recently, you’re likely to have seen pictures on their Instagram in one of Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity Rooms. If you haven’t seen a pic yet, they usually look a little something like this:

Infinity Mirrored Room – Filled with the Brilliance of Life, Kusama's largest Infinity Mirror Room to date. Tate Modern, London, UK. Yayoi Kusama is a Japanese artist. Throughout her career she has worked in a wide variety of media, including painting, collage, sculpture, performance art and environmental installations, most of which exhibit her thematic interest in psychedelic colors, repetition and pattern.

The globally renowned 90-year-old’s “Infinity Mirrored Room – Filled With the Brilliance of Life”  and “Chandelier of Grief” will open to visitors on May 11, 2020, for an entire year, closing up again on May 9, 2021. Tickets will go on sale 2 March — Tate Modern members will get free access while those without will be charged a small fee, which has not yet been disclosed. Memberships cost from £78 (about $102) per year or £7.50 (about $9.75) per month.

In the last five years, more than five million people have visited Kusama’s exhibitions in Tokyo. When speaking about Kusama’s work and that of other new installations this year, Frances Morris, director of the Tate Modern, said that the artists “embody art’s journey from the avant-garde of the early 20th century to the immersive installations being created today”.
