First performed in 1964 by Yoko Ono, in Cut Piece, the performer kneels with a pair of scissors in front of her and invites members of the audience to cut a portion of her clothing off and take it with them.


On 3 October, at the Ruskin Gallery, Cut Piece will be performed by Japanese dancer and choreographer Fukiko Takase.

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. 

​Exhibition conceived and curated by Gabriella Daris.
