It’s your very last chance to see D.C. artist Linn Meyers’ mesmerizing work at the Hirshhorn before it gets painted over. (If you can’t make it during the day, go this Thursday from 5 to 8:30 p.m. for the museum’s August Happy Hour, which will offer tours of the exhibit.) This photo from a year ago documents Meyers installing the work, and it caught my eye because I’m not sure where the work started. Did it start low and go up or did it come from the bottom left corner? Either way, Victoria Pickering’s composition is on point here.
Last night I was invited to the Hirshhorn for a special preview of "Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors." Kusama's work is way more than the sum of its parts. I mean, I was standing there thinking, "I'm basically inside a mirrored plywood box with some lights WHY AM I FEELING SO MANY FEELINGS?" ?

It’s here. You might have heard about the Hirshhorn’s new blockbuster exhibit, and if you haven’t you’re about to see it everywhere. Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors is a special and delightful treat for Washington. Kusama‘s Infinity Mirror Rooms have been installed globally but the Hirshhorn is hosting six different rooms for an exciting retrospective. James Jackson is one of the lucky first few to see the exhibit. You will need to register for free timed passes to enter. Set your alarm for Monday, February 27th—the next release for passes. They will sell out!
This image by Thinh Ly is a wonderful representation of the multi-layered screen experience. The artist looks at a screen while creating the film, the visitor watches the screen at the Hirshhorn Museum, Thinh Ly looks at one whilst photographing his subject, and you and I are looking at a screen viewing Ly’s image. Is anyone watching you as you look at your screen?
