May 15, 2015

Yoko Ono's art isn't always easy to follow—literally. In 1971, the avant-garde artist and musician exhibited an unauthorized show at New York's Museum of Modern Art called Museum of Modern (F)art that featured little more than a man waiting outside the building with a sandwich board encouraging visitors to chase flies she had released in and around the museum. Now, a new exhibit at that same museum, Yoko Ono: One Woman Show, 1960-1971, makes experience her art much easier by bringing together many, often interactive works from that decade in one place. The show, the MoMA's first one dedicated entirely to Ono's work, opens May 17 and runs through September 7.
