Tickets are only available on site at the museum for same-day entry. We recommend getting in line at around 9:00am!

We loved seeing the Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors Exhibit at the Seattle Art Museum! Through six rooms, we are able to look into the illusion of infinite space! Here are our favorites:

  1. The Obliteration Room, 2002-Present, installed 2017. At the beginning of the exhibition, this room starts as a blank canvas, filled with white furniture. Each visitor is given a sticker sheet to place stickers wherever they want. This eventually obliterates the white objects with color as more visitors go through the room!

  2. Aftermath of Obliteration of Eternity, 2009. This room reflects Kusama’s belief that obliteration is a reflection on the experience of death as well as the potential for afterlife.

  3. Dots Obsession – Love Transformed into Dots, 2007, installed 2017. We loved these huge polka-dot balloons so much that we went into this room more than once!
