Yoko Ono faces Jeff Koons' Ballerina

Published on 06-13-2016 Agenda

The MALBA turns its attention to the international icon Yoko Ono, whose conceptual and poetic charm fills up the space.

After Germany, Denmark, Spain and Bilbao's Half a Wind Show in 2014 or Lyon's Lumières de l'aube, it is MALBA's (Museo de Arte Latino Americano de Buenos Aires) turn to offer Yoko Ono a career retrospective.

The exhibition will go beyond the strict walls of the museum to invade the public space, with ads on busses, in the media and on social networks. For 4 months, the Princess of conceptual art, influenced by Dada, Marcel Duchamp, John Cage and Fluxus, will be everywhere around Buenos Aires.

Unlike some retrospectives way too overwhelming, this exhibition is focused on 80 items (objects, videos, films, installation art and sound recordings), shedding a light on the artist's Instruction Pieces, including the bloodcurdling Cut Piece that was influenced by the feminist movement.

In a daring act of display, it will face Jeff Koons' Ballerina on the museum's esplanade (until September 9th, 2016). Their confrontation will cause a few sparks to fly.
