This event has ended.
For sixty years, Yoko Ono (1933-) has freely worked across numerous fields, connecting disparate nodes and producing new creative circuits among people and media. Although Ono has usually been discussed in the context of post-war American art, this exhibition will place her art in the context of her native Tokyo. Through materials documenting her early practice, including artworks she created in Tokyo in the 1950s, ‘60s and ‘70s, and recent works and installations, this show will reveal how Ono’s activities link the modern and contemporary; Europe, Japan, and the United States; art, music and literature; avant-garde and popular culture; society and the individual. As pioneering a form of conceptual art that took her distinctive approach to words and language as its nucleus, Ono has frequently guided our attention towards serious issues through the use of humor and other strategies. This exhibition will offer an excellent opportunity to look back from our perspective today at Yoko Ono’s development in a remarkably international environment in Tokyo.
