Peace is Power

Yoko Ono is a thought-provoking artist whose work challenges us to be aware and to look more closely at the world around us. While at MOMA a few weeks ago I became better acquainted with Ono’s work as part of the city’s vibrant avant-garde during the late 1950’s, and working at the forefront of the 1960’s movement Fluxus. Fluxus is an international community of artists, designers, and poets who opposed the exclusion of the everyday from art. Don’t you just love the idea of including art in the everyday…..YES!!!

This installation covers the walls and ceiling space with blue sky, which I am told is a recurring motif in her art. The title of this work, PEACE is POWER appears across the windows in 24 languages, and it was great to see people taking photo’s of themselves in front of their native language.

This work is Yoko Ono’s latest segment in the artist’s collaboration with the Museum.

Stay stylish,
Kathleen
