MAC Lyon — Yoko Ono: LUMIÈRE Retrospective — Lyon, France — 9 MAR - 10 JUL, 2016
Musée d’art contemporain, Cité internationale, 81 quai Charles de Gaulle, 69006 Lyon
MAC Lyon is very pleased to announce the first comprehensive retrospective of the internationally known artist, Yoko Ono, to take place in France. Ono is a rare individual, who emerged as an artist, fully formed. From the beginning, working with concepts and ideas, new ways of listening, new ways of making sound. Her education was philosophy, and the extraordinarily difficult times of war and displacement. Yoko Ono has created works in many different forms – sound works, film works, participation works, instructions, architecture, installations, and environments. All of these will be reflected and included in the macLYON exhibition with works spanning the period from 1952 to 2016.
