Thanks to my friend and fellow style blogger, Brea, I was able to check out the hottest exhibition in (DC) town: Infinity Mirrors by Yayoi Kusama.

Ain't gonna lie, I was envious of those that were able to go to the pre-launch events or even copped the first batch of tickets online. Still, that didn't stop me from living vicariously through everyone's photos and videos thanks to #InfiniteKusama and Instagram stories.
The exhibition is an extensive look into Yayoi Kusama's 65 year career. Along the walls and rooms of the Hirshhorn Museum, many of her artwork and sculptures are on display.

Infinity Mirror Rooms consists of 6 enclosed rooms that transports you into her world of infinite space, thanks in large part to the rooms being installed with wall to wall, ceiling to floor mirrors. Each room offers a different perspective: peeping tom, surrounded by phallic surfaces, eternal galaxy, etc. We went on a Saturday afternoon, so a very large crowd was expected. And yet, seeing wrapped around lines for the six rooms was a bit daunting. But with patience, we managed to see them all...in 3 hours. Well worth it, though.

Tickets are released every Monday at 12 noon for the following week. Also, same day limited supply tickets are available daily at the Museum. Plenty of time left to visit until May 14 when the exhibition moves on to the next city. I mean, don't you want a chance to add a sticker anywhere you damn please in the Obliteration Room?
