The Académie de France à Rome – Villa Medici is opening its doors to Yoko Ono and Claire Tabouret with One day I broke a mirror, from 5 May to 2 July 2017. Featuring artist-icon Yoko Ono and Claire Tabouret, that astonishing revelation of the latest generation, One day I broke a mirror is going to be a must on this year’s rich international art calendar.
One day I broke a mirror is the title chosen by Yoko Ono for an exhibition mainly exploring the output of an eclectic, multidisciplinary artist of the 1960s and 1970s who was very active on the New York underground scene, notably in association with the Fluxus movement and the aftermath of the experiments of John Cage. Involving instructions, “chance” and sensory experiences, her works require the active participation of the public in order to achieve completeness and totality. A critique of war in all its forms and harmony between the peoples of the world: these are the enduring themes of Yoko Ono’s installations and performances, together with a sublimely poetic political commitment, intolerance of the conventional, and loyalty to the pacifist protest cause.
