The exhibition "Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors," currently on view at The Broad museum in Los Angeles, is popular among people who want to snap selfies in the galleries to post on social media. In recent years, new spaces have opened — like the Museum of Ice Cream — that are designed specifically to be photo backdrops.

Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson talks with Arielle Pardes (@pardesoteric), who covers technology and culture at Wired, about the phenomenon.

This segment aired on December 13, 2017.
