Event Details

While Yayoi Kusama’s career has been extensively documented, the narrative arc of her Infinity Mirror Rooms is a story that remains to be told. This talk will highlight Kusama’s unique world of self-obliteration from a strategy of radical connectivity and political liberation during the Vietnam War to a shared condition of social harmony in the present. It sheds light on the importance of the artist as a pioneer of early kinetic, participatory, and performance art practices while offering insight into how the Infinity Mirror Rooms allow us to reassess the artist’s practice through a new critical understanding of our tactile relation to objects and immateriality of virtual space.

Mika Yoshitake is an Independent Curator based in Los Angeles. A specialist on postwar Japanese art, Mika earned her M.A. and Ph.D. in Art History from UCLA. Formerly Curator at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, D.C (2011-2018), Mika curated Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors (2017-19).
