Exploring themes of violence and healing the exhibition at the Ruskin Gallery features some of Yoko Ono's early, recent and new works including ARISING, Mend Piece, and Cut Piece.


Yoko Ono's exhibition at the Ruskin Gallery explores themes of violence and healing. In ARISING (2013/2019), featuring the namesake film, the walls will be gradually covered by the submitted testimonials in response to an open call by the artist for women to send in a testament of harm inflicted upon them for simply being a woman, whilst Mend Piece (1966/2019) invites visitors to ‘mend’ broken pieces of porcelain. Collateral events include a performance of Cut Piece (1964), the screening of the film "RAPE" (1969) and a daylong symposium. ​

Conceived and curated by Gabriella Daris, YOKO ONO: LOOKING FOR.. (2 March – 31 December 2019) is a 10-month, multi-site exhibition showcasing Ono’s work in Cambridge for the first time.

Featuring over ninety early, recent and new works, most of which are participatory and will evolve as the exhibition unfolds, YOKO ONO: LOOKING FOR… will offer the opportunity to immerse ourselves fully within Ono’s multifaceted world, demonstrating the wide-ranging scope of her artistic practice, spanning an array of media including text, painting, sculpture, installation, performance, event, music, film and video.

A diverse programme of events including interventions, installations, performances, screenings and symposia will take place at Lady Mitchell Hall, The Heong Gallery, Howard Theatre, Alison Richard Building, Ruskin Gallery, Mumford Theatre and Cambridge Junction as well as many public sites in the city. 

​Conceived and curated by Gabriella Daris.
