This 1963 photograph is by Alfred Eisenstaedt, a German-American artist widely recognized for his iconic photojournalism and candid shots of everyday life.

[@highmuseumofart takeover] We are so excited to bring #infinitekusama to Atlanta. Our advance tickets sold out in less than a week, but we will have a limited number of walk-up tickets available onsite each day starting on Sunday, 11/18. Check out our Instagram for more on this amazing exhibition!

Goodbye for now, and thanks for following our #highmuseum takeover this weekend.

[@highmuseumofart takeover] People love photographing themselves in Kusama’s #InfinityMirrors. The rooms are such an immersive experience! Just tap #infinitekusama to see Kusama visitors and their photos. Kusama didn’t intend for her work to be shared so vastly across social media, as her first #InfinityMirror room, “Phalli’s Field,” was created in 1965. The mirrors allowed her to multiply her sculptures infinitely which was great because each sculpture was so labor intensive! Shown here: Yayoi Kusama, "Aftermath of Obliteration of Eternity," 2009.

[@highmuseumofart takeover] In “The Obliteration Room,” Yayoi #Kusama provides colorful dot stickers that visitors can use to eliminate the traces of the original white room through the act of communal “obliteration.” Each museum on the tour has a unique design, though all represent a domestic atmosphere. You can tell this Obliteration Room is for our Atlanta audience, as we have a Georgia peach on our table! Can you find the model doing the “dab” in our room?

[@highmuseumofart takeover] I am part of a team that makes an exhibition like this become a reality. The team at The High has been working on this show for over two years! This includes the curator, registrars, designer, interpretation team, exhibition team, and preparator team that planned every aspect of the installation. Though I am new to my role, it was my job to help problem solve, keep everyone up to date, and make sure we were thinking through all the details. This was truly a unique exhibition experience and a very memorable show for all of us to work on!

Hi artnet followers! I’m Jill Wickenheisser, manager of exhibitions at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, Georgia @highmuseumofart. I’m taking over @artnet this weekend to tell you a little bit about our newest exhibition, “Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors.” We’re the last stop of the exhibition's North American tour, and the High is so proud to bring #Kusama to the southeast.
Stay tuned for more posts throughout the weekend in anticipation of the show opening Sunday, November 18!

So why is Christie’s selling an $80 million Hockney painting with no reserve and no guarantee? artnet News answers this and other questions as it continues its coverage of this year's breakneck auction week, looking into why the consignor of this iconic painting is exposing themselves to considerable risk.

"If there is an art-market equivalent to the experience of getting about three-quarters of the way through a fun night out before realizing you left your phone in a cab," writes Tim Schneider, "Monday’s ‘Impressionist and Modern Art’ evening sale at Sotheby’s might be it." Our art market columnist breaks down how—despite setting a new record for #Magritte, with the above painting—many works were left unsold at the start of New York’s fall auction season.
