Nov. 8-Feb. 14

Though particularly famous for her Plastic Ono Band and being John Lennon’s wife, Yoko Ono, has been involved in many creative fields over the past 60 years. She was a pioneer of conceptual art, using poetry as the core of her works, and her “Grapefruits,” published in 1964, is considered a seminal artist’s book.

Here, Ono’s works, many of which were conceived overseas, have come to her hometown of Tokyo in an exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo. Paintings, photographs and documents will be displayed, including pieces to be shown in Japan for the first time.
