I've exulted about Yayoi Kusama many times over the years (here, here, and here), most recently when I created a dress inspired by her Pumpkin at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden. Pumpkin was a precursor to her exhibition, Infinity Mirrors, which opened today at the museum in Washington, DC. I had the pleasure of touring the exhibition along with the press, and got to spend time in each of her otherworldly infinity rooms with my old friend Rosh, who had agreed to take photos. For the occasion, I made another outfit: this spotted jumpsuit inspired by Infinity Mirror Room - Phalli's Field (1965-66). To my astonishment, another museum-goer, Deane Madsen, also dressed in red polka dots! Matching other art lovers is becoming more and more common (as evidenced in my last post, from LACMA). I love that more people are using clothing as a way to express their love for art!
