Yoko Ono Selected For Olympic Festival Exhibition
London's Serpentine Gallery prepares for major new Ono show, but will it be a grapefruit ?
Yoko Ono, the 78 year old widow of the late Beatles' guitarist/songwriter John Lennon is preparing for the most important exhibition of her quasi conceptual work, for ten years. The prestigious Serpentine gallery is mounting this timely exhibition which will reflect upon the enormous impact that she has made on contemporary art, exploring her influential role in art, music, film and performance. Her first exhibition in a London public institution for more than a decade, Ono will present new and existing works, some of which have rarely been shown in the UK. These will include installations, films and performances, as well as architectural alterations to the galleries.
As a part of her exhibition, Ono will present SMILE, a large-scale project which will be exhibited at the Serpentine and online for the London 2012 Festival. Conceived as a way of connecting people across the world, the project invites people to upload and send an image of their smiles, to create a global anthology of portraits.http://www.artlyst.com/articles/yoko-ono-selected-for-olympic-festival-exhibition
