Thousands queue to see Yayoi Kusama exhibit in New York

The line of people waiting to enter the Yoyoi Kusama’s Infinity Mirrored Room at the David Zwirner Gallery in New York’s Chelsea folded around the block on a cold and wet Tuesday morning.

Gallery staff said the wait was about two hours, but those waiting didn’t seem to mind. Claire Laueriere, a tourist from Lille, France, said she was very cold but willing to wait to see the works.

Kusama’s works, Lauriere said, “are naive, but they touch me very deep, and, for a few minutes, I forget everything, and I’m like someone else.” It’s not the first time the David Zwirner Gallery has hosted the 90-year-old Japanese artist Yoyoi Kusama’s works. But this is the first time when the gallery estimates the total number of visitors will reach 100,000 for the month-long showing that closes on December 14.

The main draw of the exhibit is Yoyoi’s “Infinity Mirrored Room”, a dark space filed with light bulbs that flash in white and red and are reflected on mirrored walls, being shown for the first time.
