Talk

IN CONVERSATION WITH YOKO ONO
– WAR IS OVER! (IF YOU WANT IT) - Sold Out

Sold Out

Belatedly acknowledged as a pioneer of the avant-garde, Ono was described by John Lennon as 'the world’s most famous unknown artist.’ She is now recognised as a cutting edge musician, innovative artist, and a symbol of the peace movement. Despite a career spanning more than fifty years, Ono continues to be effortlessly original and inspiring, unaffected by her ascension to celebrity status.

At 80 years of age, Ono still shows no signs of slowing down. In 2013 she was curator of the hugely successful Meltdown Festival in London, is a high profile spokesperson for Artists Against Fracking, and is releasing a new album with the Plastic Ono Band in September. Her provocative visual art continues to be at the forefront of the conceptual field, offering intensely personal and unashamedly political work, exposing her undiminished reactions to the realities of loss, conflict and enlightenment.

Yoko Ono will appear on stage at the Sydney Opera House this November in conversation with MCA Chief Curator, Rachel Kent. This event is a rare opportunity to hear from this important international thinker as she discusses her art, life, music, and activism. True to form, audiences can expect the unexpected.
