INDIA. Yoko Ono coming to India with her avant-garde art show
11/01/2012 11:29:21

Indian audiences will get a taste Yoko Ono's art as the Vadehra Art Gallery (VAG) hosts Ono’s works for the first time in the country. Titled Our Beautiful Daughters, it will include a gallery exhibition, a performance by the artist and public art projects in Delhi. In fact, the exhibitions will be accompanied by three public art projects, including the famous ‘Wish Trees’, a performance-installation art project that the conceptual and multi-media artist Yoko Ono created in 1996. VAG is collaborating with The Japan Foundation to co-organise Ono’s public art projects with additional support from Outset India.

In keeping with her long-running interest in feminism and women’s issues, Ono has created a new installation that will put the spotlight on some of the challenges women face today. She will also exhibit some of her "instruction-based works" - similar to one in which she invited viewers to cover empty canvases and walls with messages and photographs of their mothers. There will also be an interactive musical performance, titled To India, with Love, by Ono on 15 January. The event will be held at the Stein Auditorium in the India Habitat Centre (entry is strictly by passes).

A parallel exhibition titled The Seeds? will showcase some of Ono’s earlier works. Excerpts of her films, sound pieces, her collaborations with Lennon and other Fluxus artists, photographs of performances and installations will present a composite picture of Ono’s dynamic career.

Our Beautiful Daughters will be on exhibit from 13 January-10 March at Vadehra Art Gallery, D-178, Okhla Phase 1, New Delhi. The parallel exhibition, The Seeds, will run at Vadehra Art Gallery, D-53, Defence Colony, New Delhi.
