Yoko Ono is Coming to the MCA

The Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) has just announced that it will host a major survey of legendary artist Yoko Ono’s work, War Is Over! (if you want it), as part of its 2013-14 Sydney International Art Series. It will be the first solo exhibition in Australia for the artist, and though it isn’t for another year, Ono tells us to sit tight: ‘There will be many fantastic installations and participation works from different times that I know you are going to love. Until then Sydney, think peace, act peace, spread peace.’

The show encompasses five decades of her art work and takes its title from a text work by Ono and her late husband, Beatle John Lennon, which appeared across public bilboards in 12 cities in 1969. Curator Rachel Kent, who collaborated with the artist on the exhibition, says, ‘The exhibition reaffirms Ono’s firm belief in the power of human agency – specifically, people’s ability to dream and work towards a better future together.’

The exhibition will run from November 2013 to February 2014.
