A month before the three-month Infinity Mirrors exhibition coming in Washington, DC, Yayoi Kusama cooked up a teaser in the appearance of an 8-foot pumpkin at Washington's Hirshhorn Museum. The Infinity Mirrors exhibition is bound to be an aesthetic, captivating, and immersive experience that is meant to take you into worlds beyond what you think is logical and real.

It will be on for three months after which they would be touring over Toronto, Seattle, and Cleveland. Yes, Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors exhibition will be in focus at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden from February 23 to May 14, 2017; respectively. This is indeed a manifesto of Kusama's six-decade career.

"More Is Necessary" For Kusama. Debunking the popular belief that "less is more", Yayoi Kusama actually believes otherwise. The well-famed artist believes in the ethos that "more is necessary" or "more is more"; as-a-matter-of-factly.

The exhibitions are expecting big crowds especially because the Infinity Mirror can draw in numerous Instagram likes. Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden have spanned fame for five decades and counting. The exhibition features five immersive rooms alongside archival materials and paintings of the Japanese artist.

The 87-year-old Japanese artist breaks one record to another as Kusama was hailed as one of the most popular artists in museum in 2014.  Yes, the old-timer just broke the record from Beunos Aires to Mexico; that is data according to Latin America survey. Thousands of visitors stormed Brazilian sites to around 8,500 daily which made Yayoi Kusama: Infinite Obsession an infinite hit in the mainstream.

With the artist' melodramatic history linked to psychological trauma and hallucinations, you would see that reflected in the odd yet somewhat appealing contrast of colors. One of her favorite motifs is polka dots which you can see from clothes to paintings.

You can see that in the yellow pumpkin sculptures stained with black spots. The array of mirrored rooms to are sent to expand one's vision field and somehow play with it. The show is extravagant and flashy with the LED installation.

Getting Free Tickets To Yayoi Kusama: Infinite MirrorsNow, you're right into thinking that it would probably be difficult to get some tickets for the Infinite Mirrors show. While the exhibition is expecting hundreds to thousands of people, the show would want it to be as intimate as possible. "The nature of the exhibition means only a few people, really three at a time, can experience a room," Elizabeth Duggal, museum's deputy director told The Washington Post.

Yes, if you're used to rushing things - you should head somewhere else. The Infinity Mirrors which will run for 11 weeks is a once-in-a-lifetime inning you shouldn't miss or rush for that matter. Starting February 13, you can get free passes that will be distributed at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden.

Also, for Instagram users, starting February 1, you can also win free VIP passes for the opening weekend. All you have to do is go to the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden then take a snapshot of Yayoi Kusama's pumpkin structure which is for public viewing at the museum's plaze and then post it on Instagaram with this hashtag: #InfiniteKusama.
