Save Event: YOKO ONO: LOOKING FOR... ("Rape")

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:


Shot mainly in close-up with a hand-held camera, Yoko Ono and John Lennon's film 'RAPE' generates some of the fear, provoked by the press, that surrounded the couple during the height of their fame.


“RAPE” (1969)

16mm film, colour, sound, 59 minutes 48 seconds

Dir. Yoko Ono and John Lennon

Drawn from the score, FILM NO. 5/"RAPE" (or CHASE), by Yoko Ono (1968), “RAPE” was made in London in 1969. Shot mainly in close-up with a hand-held camera, the film generates some of the fear, provoked by the press, that surrounded Ono and Lennon during the height of their fame.

Followed by a discussion with Dr Tanya Horeck, Reader in Film, Media and Culture, Anglia Ruskin University, and Dr Prerona Prasad, Exhibitions and Programming Manager, The Heong Gallery, moderated by Chris Owen, Head of Cambridge School of Art, Anglia Ruskin University, and Q&A

​This screening is part of YOKO ONO: LOOKING FOR... (2 March – 31 December 2019), Yoko Ono’s first-ever exhibition in Cambridge. 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 curated by Gabriella Daris.
