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.

The Met

PARAPIVOT is the roof garden exhibition on display at The Met until October 27th, and is an exceptionally unique or creative way of utilizing the space. Berlin based artist Alicja Kwade uses a wide range of media in her installation that reflect on time, perception and scientific inquiry with the city skyline and Central Park as the backdrop.
