This March, we’re presenting the phenomenon that has been winning rave reviews from audiences and selling out museums across the United States. Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors, the first survey exhibition to explore the evolution of the celebrated Japanese artist’s immersive infinity rooms, opens a three-month run at the AGO on March 3. After runaway successes in Washington, Seattle and Los Angeles – and in response to high demand – the Gallery will put a limited number of tickets on sale to AGO Members on December 12 and to the public on January 16.
The Toronto stop of Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors promises to be the city’s biggest art event of the year. Tickets will be available for sale online only through AGO.ca. AGO Members will have an exclusive first opportunity to book tickets before the general public on Tuesday, December 12, 2017 at noon. The first opportunity to purchase tickets for the general public will take place on Tuesday, January 16, 2018 at noon. Due to the unique nature of the Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors experience, all tickets will be sold in specific time slots. There are no refunds or exchanges of tickets for this exhibition.
Admission is free for AGO Members, but tickets are not guaranteed. Members must book early to avoid disappointment. Tickets for the general public are $21.50 for post-secondary students and youth ages 17 and under, $26.50 for seniors and $30 for adults.

Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors is the biggest North American tour of Yayoi Kusama’s work in nearly two decades. Providing visitors with the unique opportunity to experience six of Kusama’s most iconic kaleidoscopic environments at once, it features large-scale, whimsical installations and key paintings, sculptures and works on paper from the early 1950s to the present. The exhibition also marks the North American debut of numerous new works by the 88-year-old artist, who is still actively making work in her Tokyo studio. These include vibrantly colored paintings and sculptures as well as her most recent infinity room, All the Eternal Love I Have for the Pumpkins (2016), featuring dozens of her signature bright yellow, dotted pumpkins.
Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors is organized by the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C. and is curated by Hirshhorn Curator Mika Yoshitake.
The AGO’s installation is coordinated by Adelina Vlas, Associate Curator of Contemporary Art. More details will be announced as they become available, so be sure to stay tuned!
