Take a tour through Yoko Ono’s show, Anton’s Memory, at this year’s Venice Biennale with the show’s curator, Nora Halpern, and Yoko herself, followed by more video, slideshows, reviews & information.
Yoko Ono began 2010 by participating in “Art Adds,” a project that exhibits her artwork on New York City taxicabs. Replacing advertisements that traditionally decorate the rooftops of taxis, Ono’s peace-promoting works (along with pieces by Alex Katz and Shirin Neshat) move throughout the city as a kind of public art. In Carol Vogel’s New York Times article about the project, Ono likens the experience to a dance, saying, “The message is always in motion.”
Thirty-two contemporary artists from 25 countries address violence against women and girls globally and their basic human rights to a safe and secure life. The beauty of this project is that it combines the highest integrity of art with important social messaging and storytelling to help create awareness, inspiration, and address systems for positive social change and action.
Exhibition curated by Randy Jayne Rosenberg.
