Washingtonians Are Dressing to Match the Hirshhorn’s Infinity Mirrors Exhibit

Instagram feeds are already overflowing with the days-old Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity Mirrors exhibit at the Hirshhorn. But the most committed have come dressed for the part.

Outfit, shoes, makeup and she’s literally lost in the experience.

This coat worn as a cape.

Polka dots are a way to infinity.“ ~Yayoi Kusama • Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors opens to the public today at the Hirshhorn, and ”playful“ doesn‘t even begin to describe the vibe. At the preview on Tuesday I particularly appreciated ”Dots Obsession – Love Transformed into Dots“ (2007), an installation that expands out into the gallery space around the large balloon dome – itself one of the artist‘s signature mirrored infinite rooms. So, worlds… within worlds… within… • And so much fun to meet the super-lovely Malissa here! • #infinitekusama #yayoikusama #hirshhorn #shotoniphone6s #blackieapp #mobiography #youmobile #artwatchers #artwatchers_united #girlsinmuseums •

Best B&W shot.

Dave wore a suit that matches, but isn’t, like, matchy-matchy.

@artfullyawear has made it her IG habit to engage with art while wearing it. We can’t get enough.
