Guggenheim Museum Bilbao is hosting a celebratory exhibition of Yoko Ono’s artistic output so far, which includes nearly 200 works distributed in several thematic sections including installations, objects, films, drawings, photographs, text, audio and documentation of performances conducted in the past. ‘Yoko Ono: half-a-wind-show. Archival’ is an overview of the multiple production of this pioneering artist of conceptual art and performance.
Yoko Ono, 80 years old this year, emerged as a leading figure in the New York art in the 70s, way before she became a Beatles wife, and maintained a close relationship with other artists such as musician John Cage, George Maciunas, another founder of the Fluxus movement, or filmmaker Jonas Mekas. Among many of the works on display, you’ll find those inspired by or made in collaboration with John Lennon. Clearly, this is a must-see.
As Ono once said: ‘Art is my life and my life is art.’ The exhibition ends September 4, 2014. See you there?
