Yoko Ono: The garden of learning freedom is a vast exhibition dedicated to the work of the iconic artist Yoko Ono, which brings together objects, works on paper, installations, performances, audio recordings and films, as well as archival materials rarely seen.
The exhibition presents a comprehensive panorama of the multifaceted production of this pioneering artist of conceptual art and performance who, during the first years of her extensive career, lived between New York, Tokyo and London, having played a pioneering role in the development of conceptualism, performing art and experimental film internationally.
Ideas, more than materials, are the main component of his work. Many of these ideas are poetic, absurd and utopian, while others are specific and practical. Some are transformed into objects, while others remain immaterial.
Often, the work reflects the artist's sense of humor, as well as her markedly socio-critical stance.
The starting point for many of Yoko Ono's works is found in his Instructions: oral or written guidelines for viewers, which offer a set of suggestions and give the audience a much more active role than is generally expected in the art world.
