The Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston will be the new home of one of artist's Yayoi Kusama's "Infinity Rooms."

Kusama, the top-selling female artist alive today, has been one of the most important voices in contemporary art for over a half a century. But, only in recent years, has her fame sky rocketed.

Her work has drawn enormous crowds and long lines to museums around the country; and served as the backdrop for countless Instagram photos.

The piece acquired by the ICA is titled "Love Is Calling," and it's the the largest of the 20 existing, coveted mirror rooms.

The room is covered in mirrors from floor to ceiling, with colorful, polka-dotted inflatable sculptures that reflect endlessly on the mirrors, immersing the viewer in an infinite, otherworldly landscape.
