    “Yoko Ono: Lumière”

    Musée d'Art Contemporain de Lyon
    Cité Internationale 81 quai Charles de Gaulle
    March 9–July 10, 2016

    Curated by Jon Hendricks and Thierry Raspail

    The remarkably resilient Ono is currently experiencing yet another career revival as her compositional and musical experimentation is discovered by a new generation. On the heels of her solo show at New York’s MoMA, the Musée d’Art Contemporain in Lyon will stage a massive survey—the artist’s first in France—of more than one hundred pieces from the six-decade career of the Fluxus maven, post-punk diva, and vital octogenarian. The show and nearly five-hundred-page catalogue will present instructions, scores, paintings, objects, performances, albums, and ephemera, all of which are sure to provoke awe and delight.
