Ono took a radical approach to the visual arts and is widely regarded as a visionary, trailblazing artist with a career spanning over 50 years.
“Through a selected overview of instructions and performance pieces, the exhibition conveys Ono’s massive influence on contemporary art practices and their ongoing activism through art,” reads the report on the event on the Vancouver Art Gallery website. “The urgency and spirit of the works of art on display are perhaps more topical and more important than ever.”
The Vancouver Art Gallery edition features not only visual works, but also music and soundscapes to accompany them.
Bring a pair of headphones to enjoy the experience to the fullest.
“By inviting the viewer to take part in the artistic process, it not only creates works that continue to grow and change, but also thwart the conventions of the art market,” it continues.
Visitors may also be able to hear some of John Lennon’s music while they are there. Saturday would have been his 81st birthday.
