With fall now well underway, there are plenty of new art exhibitions waiting to be enjoyed. From the breathtaking infinity mirrors of Yayoi Kusama, to a celebration of art produced by Latin American women and beyond, there’s no end of cultural delights on offer throughout Southern California. Here we take a look at some of the exhibitions that are simply not to be missed.
Infinity Mirrors – Yayoi Kusama
Most locals will already be familiar with the Infinity Mirrored room which is currently on display at the Broad Museum. From October until January 2018 however, the museum will be taking things to a whole new level. A special Infinity Mirrors exhibition will take over six entire rooms at the museum, showcasing the Japanese artist’s work from the last two decades. On top of the six rooms, there’s plenty of paintings and large installations by Kusama to be enjoyed. The real treat however comes in the form of her latest infinity room. Created just last year, ‘All the eternal love I have for Pumpkins’, is a spellbinding and vivid experience that is sure to live long in the memory of anyone who visits it. Advance tickets for the exhibition are already sold out but there a limited number of $30 tickets available each day.
Radical Women: Latin American Art
Running until the end of the year, the Hammer Museum is hosting a celebration of the women who created some of the best Latin American Art between 1960-1985. With works from prominent artists such as Lygia Clark, Zilia Sánchez and Ana Mendieta on display, visitors to the exhibit can expect to experience more than 260 photographs and videos as well as other works. With over 100 artists from 15 different countries featured, the exhibit is a great chance to view works that portrayed the great social upheaval of the time.

Over at the Getty Centre and running until January 14th is Sacred Landscapes, an exhibition devoted to the depiction of nature within renaissance manuscripts. By examining some of the most popular devotional manuscripts of the time, whether they’re large choir books or small prayer books, visitors will get to see some of the most illusionistic depictions of nature the period had to offer. With a wide range of manuscripts from 1400 to 1600 on display, along with plenty of panel paintings, decorative arts and drawings, it’s a must see exhibit for any fan of the renaissance period.
Playing with Fire
Head to Lacma by December 3rd to see Playing With Fire, the first major retrospective exhibition that celebrates the work of Carlos Almaraz. Widely regarded as one of the most influential artists of the LA area throughout the 70s and 80s, Almaraz was a key component of the Chicano art movement. The exhibition brings together his early, more politically motivated, works with the more personal and dreamlike paintings which were created towards the end of his life. Playing With Fire is the first exhibition to focus on the large-scale painting Almaraz produced, and those who pay the exhibition a visit will discover more than 60 paintings as well as pastels, notebooks and more. With works spread from 1967 right through to the year of his untimely death in 1989, the comprehensive and unique exhibit is well worth seeking out.
