YOKO ONO SKY PIECES illustrates Yoko Ono’s fascination with the sky. Following her exile from Tokyo during the World War II bombing raids, the sky has appeared repeatedly in Ono’s work as a metaphor for peace, freedom, the unknowable and the eternal.

About

YOKO ONO SKY PIECES will fill The Heong Gallery with pieces of the sky, featuring over thirty works in different media. The central piece of the exhibition is a new configuration of Sky TV (1966/2019), in which a closed-circuit camera will record the sky, transmitting real-time views through a network of twenty-five television monitors into the gallery. 

YOKO ONO SKY PIECES is part of YOKO ONO: LOOKING FOR... (2 March – 31 December 2019)  showcasing Ono’s work in the city of 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 a symposium 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.
