Event Details

The Tampa Museum of Art is pleased to present Yayoi Kusama’s LOVE IS CALLING, one of the artist’s iconic Infinity Rooms, on loan from the Collection of the Vinik Family Foundation. An immersive, experiential work of art, LOVE IS CALLING invites visitors to enter a mirrored room with tentacle-like soft sculptures hanging from the ceiling and positioned on the floor. These forms glow with bright, changing colors, and feature Kusama’s signature polka dots. Visitors hear audio of the artist reciting a love poem in Japanese as they walk throughout the installation. The poem, titled Residing in a Castle of Shed Tears, reflects Kusama’s musings on love, life, and death, recurring themes in the artist’s work.
