Yoko Ono: ARISING

Sat Oct 9 10 AM

Vancouver Art Gallery

The Vancouver Art Gallery is now accepting submissions from individuals who self-identify as women to be part of an installation in the upcoming exhibition GROWING FREEDOM: The instructions of Yoko Ono and The art of John and Yoko, on view from October 9, 2021, until May 1, 2022.

Visionary artist Yoko Ono invites women of all ages from all over the world to send a testament of harm inflicted on them, for simply being what they are, a woman.

The artist asks that you write your testament in your own language, in your own words and however openly you wish. You may sign your first name if you wish, but do not give your full name. Send a photograph only of your eyes.

All statements of harm and photographs will be exhibited in Ono’s ARISING, an ongoing installation that has been shown internationally.

HOW TO SUBMIT

The deadline for submissions is open.

Testaments and photographs may be sent by mail to:
ARISING
℅ Vancouver Art Gallery
750 Hornby Street
Vancouver, BC V6Z 2H7

or by email to:
