Yoko Ono:Half-A-Wind Show
HUMLEBÆK  •  Louisiana Museum of Modern Art  •  Ongoing
On the occasion of her eightieth birthday, Denmark's Louisiana Museum of Modern Art presents an extensive retrospective devoted to Japanese artist Yoko Ono. Through a consideration of characteristic works from the last sixty years, it showcases 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. First seen at the Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt, several large installations and other current works are also on view.
