Yoko Ono  “Colours of the Globe”

December 3rd (Wednesday) to December 25th (Thursday), 2008
12:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Closed on Sundays and holidays

“Add Color Painting”, which was released in the sixties, is a spectator participatory work. It is a painting piece to be completed by spectators by painting the colours as they wish on a canvas or object with felt-pens or coloring materials which were prepared at the exhibition site. It is the work which led to interactive art that has been conducted actively in recent years.

Gallery 360° held an exhibition, “Add Color Painting: I LOVE U” in 2004.

For the second time of this exhibition, we will also conduct “Add Color Painting” on the street corners in the Aoyama area. Sandwich-board people who are wearing sign boards will appear on the street corners. A man’s profile is depicted on the front of the sign board and a woman’s profile on the back. The sandwich men are going to ask the pedestrians to complete the faces by adding eyes, noses and mouths. In addition, they will invite them to go to the gallery for “Add Color Painting”. The spectators who visit the gallery will paint five colours, “white, yellow, black, blue and brown”, with felt pens, on the globes which are to be lined up inside the gallery.

This is the exhibition by Yoko Ono with her wish of changing the Earth once again to a planet filled with lots of colours, even though the planet contains various problems, such as air pollution, water problems, global warming and so on.
