15. February - 12. May 2013

Yoko Ono is one of the most influential artists of our time. On the occasion of her eightieth birthday, the SCHIRN is preparing an extensive retrospective. Through a consideration of characteristic works from the last sixty years, it will showcase the wide variety of media the artist has worked in, and the central themes of her oeuvre. Ono became well known in the early 1960s with her germinal work, which first appeared in New York and then in Japan. This work included “Instructions for Paintings”, exhibited in 1961 and 1962, “Cut Piece”, and the publication of “Grapefruit” in 1964, which solidified that reputation. The exhibition takes a particularly close look at Ono’s works from the sixties and seventies, including her influence on Fluxus, Concept Art, Performance, Environments, film, music, her work for peace, and her role in pioneering those groundbreaking ideas. Several large installations and other current works will also be exhibited.

Curator: Ingrid Pfeiffer (Schirn Kunsthalle)

Yoko Ono

The catalog provides an overview of the artist’s oeuvre as well as numerous essays whose authors examine various thematic complexes within her overall concept, including film, music, and “intermedia”. Ono’s works are characterized by dualisms and her concern with basic elements and fundamental issues of human existence. Many works revolve around the phenomena of light and shadow, water and fire, air and sky. Destruction and healing as well as balance play important roles in Ono’s concept. The catalog features a comprehensive survey of the multifaceted universe of this extraordinary artist, who is regarded as a pioneer of early conceptual, film and performance art as well as a key figure in the world of music, the peace movement and feminism, who continues to play an influential role in current developments in art. Some 200 objects, films, spatial installations, photographs, drawings and textual pieces as well as a special music room will shed light on the diverse media landscape of Ono’s art and the central themes of her oeuvre. The catalog devotes particular attention to Yoko Ono’s works from the 1960s and 1970s.
