Two Yayoi Kusama Infinity Rooms Are Coming to London
Celebrating 20 years of the Tate Modern Museum.
To celebrate its 20th anniversary, London‘s Tate Modern Museum is set to reveal a handful of iconic displays and famous artwork in May. “Our plans for May 2020 encapsulate the best of Tate Modern. We will shine a spotlight on some of the newest artists to join our collection, go behind-the-scenes in our conservation studio, and run talks and tours across the building. We also want to highlight some of the artists Tate Modern has championed over the past 20 years,” said Frances Morris, the museum’s Director, adding that over 100 million visitors have passed through the museum since its opening on May 11, 2000.
The new anniversary exhibition will feature a year-long installation of contemporary artist Yayoi Kusama‘s famous Infinity Rooms, where visitors can experience the immersive mirrored set-ups in her Filled with the Brilliance of Life and Chandelier of Greif rooms. In addition to Kusama’s work, Louise Burgeois’ recognizable giant spider Maman will return to the museum, as well as an archive display that tells Tate Modern’s history through films, objects, images and more. The exhibition will highlight the past 20 years, including artist interviews, studio visits and behind the scenes footage.
The 20th anniversary celebration will open its doors on May 11, and visitors will be able to experience the installations throughout the next year. Get a peek at what to expect in the gallery above.
