Yesterday, the Dallas Museum of Art (DMA) announced the acquisition of Yayoi Kusama’s All the Eternal Love I Have for the Pumpkins (2016), one of the artist’s signature Infinity Mirror Rooms. It is the only Infinity Mirror Room of its kind in a North American collection. The work will be jointly owned by the museum and the Rachofsky Collection.

All the Eternal Love I Have for the Pumpkins made news earlier this year when a visitor to the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden’s version of the Infinity Rooms exhibition broke a pumpkin sculpture in the installation while taking a selfie. The piece had been valued at about $800,000.

In 1997, Houston’s Rice Gallery opened the site specific exhibition Dots Obsession, one of the artist’s first American exhibitions and last year, the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston held the blockbuster exhibition Kusama: At the End of the Universe. (Read Rainey Knudson’s review of that show here).

Congratulations to the DMA and please ask your visitors to be careful with those selfies!
