Yoko Ono War is Over exhibition at MCA Sydney
‘War is Over’ (If you want it) by Yoko Ono brings together sculpture, immersive installations, written texts, films, sound compositions and participatory art works which will involve you in a range of hands-on activities – from mending and arranging broken crockery, to stamping world maps with peace stamps, to writing personal messages of love to your mother. From the personal to the political, Ono has embraced themes of loss, conflict, humanity, and the desire for world peace through her art.

The title of this exhibition comes from a text work by Yoko Ono and John Lennon that first appeared across billboards in twelve cities worldwide in 1969. It encapsulates the artist’s firm belief in the power of human agency and our ability to dream of and work together for a better future.

Sydney will be the only Australian venue for the exhibition which is part of the Sydney International Art Series.
