The works of legendary artist, peace activist and musician – Yoko Ono – were shown ay the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia for War Is Over! (if you want it): Yoko Ono exclusively to Sydney.

Famously described by John Lennon as ‘the world’s most famous unknown artist’, Ono is now recognised as an innovative artist whose work traverses generations. From the personal to the political, Ono has embraced themes of loss, conflict, humanity, and the desire for world peace through her art.

Visitors delighted sculpture, immersive installations, written texts, films, sound compositions and participatory art works which involved a range of hands-on activities – from mending and arranging broken crockery, to stamping world maps with peace stamps, to writing personal messages of love to your mother.

This was rare opportunity to see the conceptual masterpieces of Yoko Ono.
