One of the hottest art exhibits in North America is coming to Toronto this spring

Oct 17 2017, 3:19 pm

This spring, Toronto is invited to lose itself in the dazzling world of Yayoi Kusama, the mastermind behind the phenomenal art exhibit Infinity Mirrors.

After a very successful tour throughout the US, Infinity Mirrors will be making its only Canadian tour stop at the AGO, where visitors will have the opportunity to experience six of Kusama’s most iconic kaleidoscopic environments at once.

Created by the 87-year-old Japanese artist, Infinity Mirrors will feature various large-scale, whimsical installations and key paintings, sculptures and works on paper from the early 1950s to the present.

However, due to the unique nature of Infinity Mirrors and the popularity of the artist, there will only be select tickets sold in specific time slots. Visitors are advised to be early and to not miss their ticketed time, as late entry is not guaranteed.

Upon arrival, only two to four people will have access to a room at a time. Once inside, visitors will have a strict time frame of 20 to 30 seconds in each of the six rooms, as directed by the artist’s intent, and wait times for each room are estimated at 20 minutes.

Visitors should plan on spending at least up to two hours viewing the entire exhibit, but considering this is said to be the city’s biggest art event of the year, two hours inside seems like it’s not asking too much.

AGO Members will have an exclusive first opportunity to book tickets before the general public on Tuesday, December 12 at noon. The first opportunity to purchase tickets for the general public will begin more than a full month later on Tuesday, January 16, 2018, at noon.

So set those calendar reminders, this event is expected to sell out fast.

Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors

When: March 3 to May 27, 2018
The Art Gallery of Ontario, 317, Dundas Street West
Available online only through the AGO for $30 per person
