With a smorgasbord of “end of the year” graduate shows to visit & some huge activity happening in the larger galleries, the Sydney arts program is currently pretty spectacular. The Art Gallery of NSW offers a unique retrospective with the likes of Jackson Pollock & Georgia O’Keeffe in America (Painting A Nation) & The Museum of Contemporary Art welcomes the most anticipated exhibition of the year.
Arguably one of the biggest names in pop-culture, Yoko Ono has finally brought her show to The Museum of Contemporary Art in Circular Quay. The exhibition inhabits the entire 3rd floor & is comprised of mediums including illustrations, sculpture, sound compositions, performance & interactive art installations.
Famously described by John Lennon as “The world’s most famous unknown artist”, this is a rare opportunity to gain an insight into the mind of Yoko Ono & to see her collection of conceptual masterpieces. There are films covering the history behind some of Yoko Ono’s famous work & her creation of Strawberry Fields in Central Park, New York City. Participation & involvement in her work really establishes a personal connection to the installations whether it be “Peace Stamping” your own mark on a world map or writing an anonymous message on her sharing wall. It is surely something not to be missed this summer!
