Love is Calling
An icon of contemporary art, Yayoi Kusama has interwoven ideas of pop art, minimalism, and psychedelia throughout her work in paintings, performances, room-size presentations, outdoor sculptural installations, literary works, films, design, and architectural interventions over her long and influential career.
“Love is Calling,” which premiered in Japan in 2013, is the most immersive and kaleidoscopic of the artist’s infinity mirror rooms.
Representing the culmination of her artistic achievements, it exemplifies the breadth of her visual vocabulary—from her signature polka dots and soft sculptures to brilliant colors, the spoken word, and most importantly, endless reflections and the illusion of space.
It is composed of a darkened, mirrored room illuminated by inflatable, tentacle-like forms—covered in the artist’s characteristic polka dots—that extend from the floor and ceiling, gradually changing colors.
As visitors walk throughout the installation, a sound recording of Kusama reciting a love poem in Japanese plays continuously.
Immerse yourself in the kaleidoscope of Yayoi Kusama’s “Love is Calling,” Mar. 9, 2023 through Feb. 11, 2024, at Pérez Art Museum Miami.
In addition to its daytime hours, PAMM is open until 9 p.m. on Thursdays.
This is ideal for those who are unable (or unwilling) to visit museums by day.
#EveryMuseum in America could be open late at least once a month.
