Washington DC: Ausstelllung Yoko Ono


Yoko Ono: Four Works for Washington and the World
17.06.2017 – 17.09.2017
Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington Independence Avenue at 7th Street, SW

Zur Ausstellung schreibt das art-magazin: "The Hirshhorn celebrates the tenth anniversary of Yoko Ono´s iconic Wish Tree for Washington, D.C., a living tree that invites visitors to tie a handwritten wish to its branches, with a summer of the Ono´s emotionally-charged installations and performances. Starting June 17, visitors can make a wish at the Wish Tree, leave memories of their mother at the U.S. debut of My Mommy is Beautiful, a 40-foot participatory artwork that becomes a communal tribute to motherhood, and watch the newly re-staged Sky TV for Washington, D.C., a 24-hour live feed of the sky outside, created in 1966 when Ono was living in a windowless apartment and longed for a glimpse of nature. The summer culminates in a day-long concert in September, featuring noted local and national musicians, who will present their variations of Ono´s works and their own pieces inspired by her key role in performance history. Over the past decade, nearly 80,000 wishes have been collected from the Hirshhorn´s Wish Tree and sent to Ono´s Imagine Peace Tower, an active memorial in Iceland.
Yoko Ono (b. 1933, Tokyo) is a Japanese American multimedia artist, singer, songwriter, and peace activist who is also known for her work in performance art and filmmaking.
