Yoko Ono returns to MoMA with new exhibition

'Yoko Ono: One Woman Show, 1960-1971'


After making her unofficial debut at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in 1971, with a woman show, the iconic artist is now returning over forty years later with a official show dedicated exclusively to the work of Yoko Ono

From May to September, 2015, Yoko Ono – the groundbreaking conceptual and performance artist – will be covering the walls and spaces of New York's MoMA once again with Yoko Ono: One Woman Show, 1960-1971. In 1971, Ono unveiled a unusual artwork where she released a batch of flies into the museum grounds and asked visitors to be participants of the piece, tracking the insects as they were scattered across the city. The flies were even sprayed with her perfume, to carry her scent around New York.

However, this time around the new MoMA exhibition will showcase approximately 125 of her early objects, works on paper, installations, performances, audio recordings, and films, as well as rarely seen archival treasures. A number of works will also invite visitor interaction, including Painting to Be Stepped On (1960/1961) and Ono's iconic performance, Bag Piece (1964).
