The John Lennon and Yoko Ono exhibition at the Vancouver Art Gallery


A major new exhibition arrives at the Vancouver Art Gallery in October.

GROW IN FREEDOM: The instructions by Yoko Ono / Le art by John and Yoko breaks down into two parts.

The first is Ono’s educational work, which broke down barriers between artistic disciplines and underscored Ono’s radical approach to visual art.

Some pieces will be interactive and allow people to complete the job through actions such as mending broken porcelain (REPAIR A PART, 1966) and drive nails into the canvas (PAINT TO HAMMER A NAIL, 1966).

The second part of this exhibition will focus on the collaborative work she has undertaken with her late husband, John Lennon.

Among these works are the campaign for peace “THE ENDED WAR (If you will)” (1969) and the “BED-INS FOR PEACE (1969)”.

According to the Vancouver Art Gallery, “The exhibition conveys Ono’s massive impact on contemporary art practices and his ongoing activism through art. The urgency and spirit of the works on display are perhaps more relevant and important than ever.

The exhibition is organized by the Phi Foundation for Contemporary Art, Montreal, and curated by Gunnar B. Kvaran and Cheryl Sim.

GROWING IN FREEDOM: Yoko Ono’s Instructions / The Art of John and Yoko will be open to the public from October 9 to May 2, 2022.
