Once described by her late husband John Lennon as ‘the world’s most famous unknown artist,’ avant garde pioneer Yoko Ono is heading to Australia for her first ever on stage performance here – and an exclusive one – at the Sydney Opera House on Sunday November 17 at 3.00pm.
Now recognised as an innovative artist, and a symbol of the peace movement, the 80-year-old Ono remains active. In 2013 she was curator of the Meltdown Festival in London, became a high profile spokesperson for Artists Against Fracking, and will be releasing a new album with the Plastic Ono Band in September.
In Conversation with Yoko Ono: War is Over! (if you want it) will provide a rare opportunity to hear from Ono as she discusses her art, life, music, and activism.
Sydney will also be the only Australian venue for the exhibition War is Over! (if you want it) at the Museum of Contemporary Art. A retrospective of five decades of her art works, many of these conceptual artworks involve hands-on experiences for viewers. The exhibition opens at MCA on November 15.
Yoko Ono’s Sydney Opera House ‘In Conversation’ appearance is on Sunday 17th November, from 3pm at the Joan Sutherland Theatre. Tickets go on sale this Friday July 26, with prices ranging from $28 to $58.50.
