Your next trip to Tate Modern will be a special one as the art gallery and museum will be housing world-famous Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity Rooms as part of a year-long exhibition in London. Earlier, the exhibition was supposed to take place during Tate’s 20th anniversary this year, but was put on hold due to the pandemic.

Now that things are comparatively under control, the exhibition is on. Apart from the Infinity Mirrored Room — Filled With the Brilliance of Life, it will also have another room called Chandelier of Grief, which will appear like an endless universe of rotating chandeliers. Alongside both rooms, visitors will also be privy to photography and footage from the renowned artists’ studio and early works.

Yayoi Kusama is undoubtedly one of the most influential artists’ of our time. The 91-year old’s works always draw huge crowds, and in particular, the Infinity Rooms are always a phenomenal hit with people waiting in line for hours to click a selfie inside Kusama’s celestial looking mirrored rooms. The artist’s work has been on display at the Broad Museum in Los Angeles since September 15 and has already drawn more than two million viewers and counting since then.  

Tate Modern reopened to the public in July 2020, after being shut down for four months owing to the lockdown. The Infinity Rooms exhibition will open in Spring 2021 and the tickets will be available on the museum’s official website. Moreover, while they’ll reportedly be free for Tate members, for non-members they’ll be priced at approximately INR 480.
