The Extermination Room at Tate Modern, by Yayoi Kusama

There’s no doubting the most Instagrammable attraction at Tate Modern right now: it must surely be Yayoi Kusama’s dazzling infinity rooms, which until June 2023† Stepping into an infinity room is quite an experience, but visitors to Tate Modern will soon be able to try creating their own room, thanks to Kusama’s interactive artworks The extermination chamber† It invites you to enter a bare white apartment, armed to the teeth with an array of colorful dots, and let your creative juices flow…

The destruction chamber opens on July 23 as part of UNIQLO Tate Play series, and while it’s a fun and healthy activity for the whole family – letting the little kids create a piece of art at the Tate is definitely a flex – it’s also an excellent way to spice up your social media feeds. There are no limits to what you can decorate; walls, ceilings, crockery, benches and the floor are all fair here, the only job is to make things as colorful as possible. What does that look like in the end? Watch Tate Modern’s fun time-lapse video to see:


Aside from sprucing up an apartment’s blank canvas (maybe it’ll give you some interior inspiration?), guests can also create their own artwork that will be added to a growing display in the cavernous Turbine Hall, formerly home to large-scale installations from below. more Olafur Eliasson, Kara Walker, Ai Weiwei and Rachel Whiteread. An illustrious company, isn’t it?

Fortunately, it’s completely free to participate in the refurbishment of The Destruction Room, and the space will be open every day between July 23 and August 29 from 10am to 6pm. Reservations are not necessary, so when the mood strikes to make some art, feel free to let loose!
