Looking for something new and exciting to do? How about visiting the Tomie Ohtake Institute here in São Paulo and going to Yoko Ono’s newest exhibition: “The sky is still blue, you know…”. This exhibition is interactive from the start and as visitors enter the different rooms they receive instructions like “Cover the world with peace”. Stamps are available for people to grab and add to the world map.
The exhibition consists of 65 pieces called “Instructions” which invite spectators to interact with each work. With it, Yoko Ono continues to question the concept of art. Other pieces include nails, broken china, stones, helmets, and women’s accounts. Overall, the exhibition wants visitors to help construct the artist’s works while still reflecting on some very important and controversial issues of our world today.
If you want to find out more about this, then I really recommend you visit the exhibition and experience it. The exhibition will be open Tuesdays to Sundays until May 28.
