BILBAO  •  Guggenheim Museum Bilbao  •  Ongoing
On the occasion of her eightieth birthday, the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao presents an extensive itinerant 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. Several large installations and other current works will also be exhibited.
