Just a quiet corner in Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity Mirrors show at The Broad.

I love Kusama’s work so I’ve been looking forward to this since it was first announced. It is strange to experience Kusama’s work with a whole host of people who are likely there to use the work as selfie backdrop. As judgmental as that sounds, I am definitely not exempt from that statement. While the rooms are definitely amazing, I think because the rooms are so dedicated to obliterating the self that the pieces where you can see more of the artist’s touch are the ones that were most successful for me personally.

That being said, there is something kind of poetic and beautiful about every person who passed through the obliteration room being reduced to a dot of primary color, like light dispersed through a prism.
