Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors

Even if you’re not completely in the art world it’s probably rare that you haven’t heard of artist Yayoi Kusama who is known for her eye-catching art installations that employ the use of mirrors, dots, and light. You’d be hard pressed not to have been caught up in the news particularly around the hype of Infinity Mirrors at the Hirshhorn and the conversations around a broken pumpkin. I got lucky enough to enjoy the exhibition last weekend and swooned over the use of light, space, reflection and color.

THE WARHOL

Andy.Warhol. Who doesn’t love Andy Warhol?! His avant-garde style has made him one of the most influential figures in contemporary art and culture. You’d be hard pressed to find someone who doesn’t recognize his work. So, of course I had to visit The Warhol museum, especially since it’s located in his native city of Pittsburgh! I got extra lucky because at the time I visited there was joint exhibition with the artist Ai Weiwei in a show titled Andy Warhol | Ai Weiwei. I mean, how does a girl get so lucky?!?

RAGNAR KJARTANSSON :: HIRSHHORN MUSEUM AND SCULPTURE GARDEN

Ragnar Kjartansson was by far one of my favorite exhibitions that I’ve seen recently and is currently on view at the  Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden through this Sunday, January 8, 2017. The exhibition draws from experiences with Kjartansson’s family and utilizes repetition to showcase the theme of endurance.
