Long lines and big crowds to see this artist’s show at the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington make you wonder.
In a tumultuous era, some museums are rushing to embrace the political moment, while others deliberately retreat.
Part of “Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors” had to be closed to the public after a visitor damaged a sculpture.
For more than 50 years, the Japanese ultra-Pop artist has awed audiences by crafting sculptural illusions with light and mirrors to replicate the sense of infinity. Experience five rooms at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden.
An exhibition at the Smithsonian’s Hirshhorn Museum in Washington focuses on the mirrored-room environments of Ms. Kusama, a fixture of popular culture.
It has appointed four new trustees to its board, including two from China and Australia, and has acquired works by international artists.
Female artists will be the focus of many important solo shows, including Mierle Laderman Ukeles, Carmen Herrera, Yayoi Kusama and Pipilotti Rist.
Six of the Japanese ultra-Pop artist’s “infinity mirror” rooms and other works will be on view starting next year.
