Enter an unforgettable universe of luminous color and endless reflections, only at SFMOMA!

Experience the kaleidoscopic world of Yayoi Kusama, one of the most iconic and globally celebrated artists working today. Kusama’s first solo presentation in Northern California encompasses two Infinity Mirror Rooms, including her newest room, Dreaming of Earth’s Sphericity, I Would Offer My Love (2023), a cosmos of dancing color and light.

LOVE IS CALLING (2013), the second room in the presentation — and one of Kusama’s largest and most immersive works — features a darkened environment illuminated by vividly colored inflatable forms that extend from the floor and ceiling accompanied by the sound of the artist reciting a poem about love.

The infinite awaits. Join us for this extraordinary experience.

This is a surcharged presentation that requires a timed ticket for all visitors including teens and children.
