ADD COLOUR – A Yoko Ono Exhibition

add colourADD COLOUR – A Yoko Ono Exhibition at THEMUSEUM will feature ten pieces hand selected by the artist. The exhibition will run throughout the summer months.

Yoko Ono is a multi-media artist whose thought provoking work challenges people’s understanding of art and the world around them. From the beginning of her career in the early 60s, she was a conceptualist whose work encompassed performance, instructions, film, music, and writing. In 1969, together with her husband John Lennon, she realized Bed-In, and the worldwide War Is Over! (if you want it) campaign for peace. Yoko Ono’s creative influence and prolific output continues to inspire new generations.

The works chosen for THEMUSEUM bring a message of peace to the world.

The interactive pieces encourage visitors to participate- from hanging a personal wish on Wish Trees for Kitchener to proclaiming your love via a special code to mending broken pottery. Each piece allows the visitor to reflect on the message and make a contribution together to a larger work.

“Yoko Ono is an incredibly important artist on a historical, international level,” says David Marskell, THEMUSEUM’s CEO. “Part of our mandate is to scan the globe for fresh cultural content and present this community with diverse voices. Yoko Ono’s message can be experienced through the pieces in this show and it’s one worth sharing.”
