YOKO ONO: LOOKING FOR…24/02/2019
Showcasing Yoko Ono’s work in the city of Cambridge for the first time ever, the exhibition YOKO ONO: LOOKING FOR… will evolve throughout the year 2019, with a diverse programme of events including installations, interventions, performances, film screenings and a symposium, taking place at Lady Mitchell Hall, The Heong Gallery, Howard Theatre, Alison Richard Building, Ruskin Gallery, Mumford Theatre and Cambridge Junction as well as many public sites in the city.
Featuring over ninety early, recent and new works, most of which are participatory and will evolve as the exhibition unfolds, YOKO ONO: LOOKING FOR… will offer the opportunity to immerse ourselves fully within Ono’s multifaceted world, demonstrating the wide-ranging scope of her artistic practice, spanning an array of media including text, painting, sculpture, installation, performance, event, music, film and video.
The exhibition marks the 50th Anniversary of Yoko Ono’s debut public performance with John Lennon that took place at Cambridge University\’s Lady Mitchell Hall on 2 March 1969. The live recording of the concert \’Cambridge 1969\’ will be available for the public to listen to until the end of the year whilst a historic plaque will preserve a hidden gem of Cambridge\’s social history – both in the foyer of Lady Mitchell Hall.
The exhibition is conceived and curated by Gabriella Daris.
