Today we’re going to be rounding up a few picks of Japanese artists showing in New York this fall season. Our first pick is Yayoi Kusama, who recently joined David Zwirner Gallery and is now really rubbing it in to her ex-gallerist Gagosian. In what is promising to be the next Rain Room (ie: long lines and obligatory instagram selfies) eccentric artist Yayoi Kusama is showcasing a monumental body of new and recent work. Headlining the show “I Who Have Arrived In Heaven” is Kusama’s immersive mirrored infinity room, which features a surrealistic dark room of mirrors, LED lights and water. As of now we’re hearing that the wait to get in is 2 hours and there is a time limit of 40 seconds to spend in the room.

the infinity room is not an experience so much as it is a place to take a photo of yourself and send to your friends. it is art as surface, as a one liner, surprisingly two dimensional.
