(MIAMI, FL, February 16, 2023) Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) is pleased to present Yayoi Kusama: LOVE IS CALLING, the most immersive and kaleidoscopic of the artist’s renowned Infinity Mirror Rooms. The exhibition will be on view from March 9, 2023 to February 11, 2024. LOVE IS CALLING is the artist’s largest environment to date-embodying the culmination of Kusama’s artistic feats, the show incorporates her signature polka dots and bold colors, the spoken word, and limitless reflections that double as optical illusions.
March 9, 2023 to April 7, 2024
“We are honored to offer this experience to our audience as Kusama is an iconic artist with an important career trajectory. She has been creating works that are lively, thoughtful, and introspective, which have been enjoyed by viewers for over six decades and will certainly be enjoyed by our Miami audience,” said PAMM Associate Curator Jennifer Inacio.
Viewers will enter a darkened, mirrored room illuminated by inflatable, tentacle-like forms that extend from the floor and ceiling, gradually changing colors. As visitors walk through the installation, a sound recording of Kusama reciting a love poem in Japanese plays continuously. Written by the artist, the poem’s title translates to Residing in a Castle of Shed Tears. Exploring enduring themes including life and death, the poem poignantly expresses Kusama’s hope to spread a universal message of love through her art.
“We are thrilled to showcase LOVE IS CALLING at Pérez Art Museum Miami, a perfect home for a work that connects people from all walks of life,” said PAMM Director Franklin Sirmans.
This is the first time the legendary artist has exhibited at PAMM. As Miami’s flagship art museum, PAMM is committed to showcasing 20th and 21st-century international modern and contemporary art. By presenting LOVE IS CALLING, the museum honors its mission of creating genuine human interaction, communication, and exchange for Miami’s diverse audiences through art.
Yayoi Kusama is one of the world’s most recognized and celebrated artists today. Her work has transcended two of the most notable art movements of the late twentieth century: Pop art and Minimalism. Her nearly seven-decade seminal career spans painting, performance, large-scale presentations, outdoor sculptural installations, literary pieces, films, fashion, and design. Featured globally in solo and group presentations, Kusama established herself in New York and presented groundbreaking events and exhibitions.
