If you weren’t able to get your hands on tickets to the covetable Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors exhibit this spring, you’re in luck – as it may be returning to Toronto permanently in the near future.
Following its extremely successful run in Toronto that dazzled more than 165,000 visitors, the AGO has launched an “ambitious” crowdfunding campaign to acquire Infinity Mirrors artwork from the world-renowned artist Yayoi Kusama.
The AGO has revealed that it has secured half the purchase price for an Infinity Mirror Room, which has never been exhibited in Canada before.
Through the new #InfinityAGO crowdfunding campaign, the AGO is encouraging Torontonians to donate so current and future art lovers can experience the mesmerizing exhibit for years to come.
“Yayoi Kusama is one of the most important artists alive today. The opportunity to have an Infinity Mirror Room as part of the AGO’s collection is deeply exciting,” says Stephan Jost, the AGO’s Michael and Sonja Koerner Director, and CEO.
“We know that the people of Toronto have a special bond with Kusama and her art. It is time that a major Kusama Infinity Mirror Room be here in our city and province.”
The AGO hopes to reach its crowdfunding goal of $1.3 million CAD within 30 days so that the work can be brought to Toronto as soon as possible.
