Infinity Mirror Room opens to the public this May at the Art Gallery of Ontario

Following the success of AGO’s ambitious crowdfunding campaign, Canada’s first permanent Infinity Mirror Room will open to the public on May 25 at the Art Gallery of Ontario.

Yayoi Kusama’s INFINITY MIRRORED ROOM – LET’S SURVIVE FOREVER is now a part of the AGO Collection and makes its Canadian debut this spring. It is the first contemporary artwork acquired in Canada through a major crowdfunding campaign.

Fewer than 20 Yayoi Kusama Infinity Mirror Rooms are on view worldwide. First realized in 2017, LET’S SURVIVE FOREVER is larger than most, featuring mirrored orbs suspended from the ceiling and arranged on the floor. A mirrored column inside the room invites visitors to peer into a seemingly infinite field of silver spheres. Up to four visitors can enter the work at one time, and visitors can spend up to one minute inside.
