The Broad Collection
On view in the third-floor galleries is a robust and changing selection of masterworks from the Broad collection. The installation includes works by major artists who came to prominence in the 1950s, including Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, and Cy Twombly. The Pop art of the 1960s—an area of great depth in the collection—is represented through works by Roy Lichtenstein, Ed Ruscha, and Andy Warhol, among others. Moving into the 1980s, the installation presents a rich concentration of works by artists such as Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring, Barbara Kruger, and Jeff Koons.

Special Installation: Yayoi Kusama's Infinity Mirrored Room
On view on the first floor is Yayoi Kusama's Infinity Mirrored Room, a mirror-lined chamber housing a dazzling and seemingly endless LED light display. This experiential artwork has extremely limited capacity, accommodating one visitor at a time for about a minute, and requires a separate free timed ticket which general admission ticket holders are able to reserve, pending availability, after arrival into the museum. Time in the Infinity Mirrored Room cannot be reserved in advance of your visit. Due to the limited capacity of the installation, not all visitors are able to experience it, as the waitlist for viewings usually books up early in the day. This installation will be on view through fall 2016. Visit our Ticketing and Visit FAQ page to learn more about how to see this installation.
