Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity Mirror Rooms may very well have inspired the notion of immersive experiences with art. A pioneer in the genre, the first of these rooms debuted in 1965. Now, the first mirror pumpkin room created since 1991 is coming to Newfields. While many of our artworks hang on walls, this work, filled with acrylic yellow pumpkins covered in black polka dots, will encompass an entire gallery. As you enter the room, your reflection in the mirrors changes the experience, making it unique to every new visitor, and sure to provide an enviable Instagram moment.
