There seems to be a new exhibit being featured in the MOMA this summer. But instead of walking from room to room, sneaking selfies with the artwork, you can get involved with pieces and be a curator of the final product. The MOMA is holding an interactive exhibit entitled Make Your Own Yoko Ono Piece on July 21st.
You may remember Yoko Ono as the multi-talentd singer, artist and peace activist who was married to the late John Lennon. While her artwork and legacy have reigned iconic over the years – from her famous Rolling Stone Magazine cover and enchanting bed-ins – this exhibit only amplifies her impact on art and culture. The interactive event prompts viewers and gallery goers to collectively get involved in creating art pieces inspired by Yoko Ono’s methods and aesthetics. The exhibit is in conjunction with Ono’s exhibit at the MOMA, One Woman Show,1960-1971 which featured a series of the artists early works, installations, papers, and explores some of her performances and films. Participants will have the chance to discuss and act out her most historic and iconic works of art and then create a rendition of their own.
Unfortunately for all, it is a one-day exhibit. So if you’re in the New York City area, you better think fast. The Make Your Own Yoko Ono Piece exhibit is free with admission into the MOMA and will go down at 1:30pm. No registration is required. Don’t worry; if you miss the interactive exhibit, you can still view Yoko Ono’s One Woman Show, which is being revisited at the museum until September 7th.
