YOKO ONO (Closing Soon)

Yoko Ono: One Woman Show

Unofficial MoMA Debut
At that time, Ono advertised her “one woman show,” titled Museum of Modern [F]art. However, when visitors arrived at the Museum there was little evidence of her work. According to a sign outside the entrance, Ono had released flies on the Museum grounds, and the public was invited to track them as they dispersed across the city.
Now, over 40 years later, Yoko Ono: One Woman Show, 1960–1971 surveys the decisive decade that led up to Ono’s unauthorized exhibition, bringing together approximately 125 of her early objects, works on paper, installations, performances, audio recordings, and films, alongside rarely seen archival materials. A number of works invite interaction, including Painting to Be Stepped On (1960/1961) and Ono’s groundbreaking performance

at the center
Around 1968, Ono decided to create a band “that would never exist, that didn’t have a set number of members, that could accommodate anyone who wanted to play with it.”  The name derived from a small three-dimensional work composed almost entirely of transparent plastic objects that John Lennon made in response to Ono’s initial idea.
