Kitchener - A Yoko Ono art exhibit is coming to The Museum in Kitchener from May 12 to September 3. The artist will not be making an appearance at the Canadian exhibit.
The Museum in Kitchener, Ontario is presenting the art exhibit "Add Colour: A Yoko Ono Exhibit" which will feature 10 of the 79-year-old artist's art works; all of the works were selected by the artist and have been shown before. Among the works which will be shown at this exhibit is the Add Colour Painting from 1966.
According to an article in the Kitchener Record:
Ono’s artwork has always had strong conceptual and interactive thrusts. Following in the Dada tradition, her work challenges conceptions and assumptions about the nature of art. Love and peace are recurring themes
Another of the artworks on display will be a Wish Tree, an interactive art project which encourages visitors to
participate- from hanging a personal wish on 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
The Wish Tree has been quite successful in many Yoko Ono art exhibits throughout the United States.
Yoko Ono has long been a figure in the avant-garde art world, many years before she met and married John Lennon. She is not to everyone's taste but it cannot be denied that she has made her mark on the world.
The Museum is located at 10 King St. W. in Kitchener and is open to the public Wednesday-Friday from 10 am-4 pm and Saturday-Sunday from 10 am-5 pm. General admission is $13.
