The Kunstsammlung Nordrhein­ Westfalen, in cooperation with Tate Modern, presents a compre­hensive solo exhibition celebrating the ground­breaking and influential work of artist and activist Yoko Ono (b. 1933, Tokyo). Ono is a trailblazer of early conceptual and partici­patory art, film and performance, a celebrated musician, and a formidable campaigner for world peace. Spanning seven decades of the artist’s powerful, multidisciplinary practice from the mid­-1950s to now, YOKO ONO. MUSIC OF THE MIND traces the development of her innovative work and its enduring impact on contemporary culture. The exhibition brings together over 200 works including instruction pieces and scores, installations,films, music and photography, revealing a radical approach to language, art and participation that continues to speak to the present moment.
