“Infinity Mirrored Room”

By Leslie Newell Peacock

Through Oct. 2. Crystal Bridges Museum of Art, Bentonville.

Yayoi Kusama, the famed red-wigged Japanese artist whose work you’re as likely to see in Selfridges in London or the MoMA gift shop in New York as a museum, is passionate about dots. You’ll see them in her art installations, clothing, paintings, purses and other accessories. You’ll also see them in the “Infinity Mirrored Room — My Heart is Dancing into the Universe” at Crystal Bridges, in the contemporary art gallery. To enter the room in September, you’ll have to be a member of the museum; nonmembers may enter Oct. 2. Visits to the mirror-filled room, filled with dotted paper lanterns that change color and appear to be in infinite space, are limited to one minute. Maybe that’s to keep the visitor from passing out, or perhaps only one person at a time can visit the room; the Crystal Bridges literature is vague on that point. The museum has acquired the work; it also owns another work by Kusama, “Flowers that Bloom Now,” a painted stainless steel sculpture of a large polka-dotted daisy.
